$6.00 – $19.20
Native to the Mediterranean and South Asia, Cumin is also a signature flavor for Central American and European cuisines. As a symbol of love and fidelity during the Middle Ages, wedding guests carried Cumin in their pockets, and wives of soldiers added it to baked bread for their husbands. Our Cumin is hand harvested, and has a high percentage of essential oils, delivering more powerful aromatics, and a slightly astringent, citrusy quality.

Asafoetida/Fenugreek Blend$8.00 – $12.00
This powdered gum resin is used in Indian cooking. It has a foul smell, but when cooked it takes on an onion/garlic/leek flavor. Known as food of the Gods, it is also said to aid with digestion.
Asafoetida (Hing) is often used as an onion/garlic substitute in Indian dishes. Use sparingly–a little goes a long way. This blend uses Fenugreek as a processing agent rather than the more commonly found wheat.
