Wild Black Cumin Seeds


In stock


Black Cumin, Bunium persicum, is a cousin to the more commonly cultivated Cuminum cyminum.   This cumin is from the wilds of the Northeastern province of Badakhshan and Baghlan in Afghanistan,  where it has been harvested for centuries, and is picked and dried in small batches. Traditionally used in Northern India and parts of the Middle East in stews, curries and grilled meats.  Spice Tribe’s Wild Black Cumin Seeds can be used in any recipe calling for cumin and will take your curries, Middle Eastern dishes and even Mexican cuisine to the next level.  We recommend toasting this seed prior to grinding to bring out its deliciously nutty aromatics.
