Cumin Seed (Cuminum cyminium) is indigenous to Egypt and was one of the spices the ancient Egyptians used to mummify the bodies of the pharohs. Today, it is cultivated in many parts of the world including Russia, India, Mexico, Morocco, Syria and Turkey.

Cumin is widely used in Indian, Turkish and Egyptian cuisine. It is one of predominant flavors in many Tex-Mex dishes.

Cumin is a powerful spice and should be used sparingly. When used with a light touch, it adds an exotic flavor to meat, poultry, pork and vegetables. Try cumin on any type of potato. It will help you use less salt.

    Why Buy Your Spices at Silver Cloud Estates?

    Why buy spices online when they are so readily available at your local store? The answer is quality and price. The spices sold at your local store are often a year or two old. As spices age, they loose much of their flavor. Silver Cloud's spices are always fresh, never old. Our products are also an excellent value. When you need spices, click on Silver Cloud Estates for the freshest products at great prices.
