Frontier Co-op: Ethically Sourced Spices Available at Vitacost

Frontier Co-Op Organic Cumin Seed Ground Description

  • Cuminum cyminum
  • Certified USDA Organic
  • Non-Irradiated
  • Kosher

Frontier Co-op® Ground Organic Cumin seed (Cuminum cyminum) is the second most popular spice around the world, ranked just below black pepper. It has been used by the Egyptians since around 5000 B.C. to season meats, fish, and stews. Today, cumin seed is very popular in Middle Eastern, Indian, and Mexican cuisines.

 

Ground cumin seed is known for its versatility and importance in many dishes. Aside from being an essential ingredient in curry powder, cumin has long been used to soften the 'heat' of sauces, fiery chilis, soups, stews, and more!

 

Frontier Co-op ground cumin seed is high-quality, organic cumin with a robust and authentic flavor. It is extremely aromatic with a warm, spicy, and earthy taste. It blends easily into any dish! Cumin seeds have been enjoyed worldwide, but are especially popular in Indian, Middle Eastern, and Mexican cuisines.

 

We source our ground cumin from India and Turkey where the most flavorful cumin is grown. This product has no artificial additives or chemicals. Frontier Co-op Ground Cumin Seed is nothing but pure, organic cumin that is also non-irradiated and kosher certified!

 

Owned by stores and organizations that buy and sell our products, Frontier Co-op® has been a member-owned cooperative since 1976. We support natural living and our products are never irradiated or treated with ETO. We're committed to the health and welfare of the environment and everyone producing and consuming our botanical products.


Directions

Directions: Try roasting the seeds before adding to dishes to subdue cumin's bitterness and to add a nuttier flavor.

Suggested Uses: A primary ingredient in curry and garam masala blends, cumin seasons many ethnic dishes. Latin American soups and stews are flavored with cumin, as are Mexican meat, bean and rice dishes. While Mexican cooks characteristically rub the cumin seeds in their hands before dropping them into the cooking pot, Indians sprinkle the roasted, powdered spice over cooked vegetables and meats. In Morocco, brochettes (grilled meat kebabs) are seasoned with a blend of cumin, turmeric, ginger, peppercorns, garlic, onions and parsley. Germans have long used cumin in sauerkraut, while the Hebrews traditionally add it to unleavened bread. Dutch and Swiss cooks use it to flavor cheese (Edam cheese in particular), cakes and breads (especially rye). Western cooks use it--in combination with other spices--to flavor fruit pies and cookies, cheese dips, cottage cheese, sandwich spreads, eggs, fish, casseroles, salad dressings, tomato-based sauces, poultry and meats like roast pork, sausage and meat loaf. (Cumin is also found in commercial meats, cheeses, liqueurs and pickles.)

Sweet Potato, Carrot & Lentil Patties with Ginger Sauce

Vegetarian patties, known as tikkies, are a popular street food in India. They’re made with a combination of vegetables and a potato base. This protein-rich sweet potato version offers a tasty – and even more wholesome – twist on that tradition. Lentils, vegetables and seeds are bound together with gluten-free flour for dunkable patties that go perfectly with a simple sweet chili, sunflower and ginger sauce. Hard to believe, but they’re even better the next day for lunch! We don’t question the magic; we just enjoy them – twice.
