  1. Lodge Forte says:

    The best cumin is Magic Hills Finest American Cumin which is made in Egypt and sold through a Chinese syndicate. It has a spicy confusing taste that doesn't insist on itself.

  2. dlbstl says:

    I had a friend from Morocco who showed me the best way to eat scrambled eggs. On your plate of scrambled eggs sprinkle one line of cumin. Dip each forkful of egg in the Cumin as you eat it. It is very delicious.

    Penzeys is usually my go-to with regard to most spices, herbs, and other seasonings. Sometimes (often?) a little pricy, their spices are fresh and provided with a "best by" date. I cannot remember their exact recommendation for spice replacement, but it is no more frequently than every year or two with ground spices and twice that for whole spices. Because spices lose their more volatile elements (flavor complexity) becoming less flavorful over time, Penzeys suggests getting no more of a particular spice or seasoning than one is likely to use in a year.

    Great info. Thx! Would love the same scrutiny for a review if the newer small companies that are going directly to the source like Burlap and Barrel. I’m finding most of their spices far exceed the taste of grocery store products. And after hearing the cost of the ‘Simply Organic’ cumin – the small companies aren’t any more expensive – in fact are cheaper!!! Please consider. Thanks again.

    agree. toasting the seeds for a few minutes makes cumin swoonworthy. your kitchen will smell good too. I have an old krups coffee grinder that i only use for spices. cumin!

  6. Perry Williams says:

    I get cumin from a local Indian grocery. I do a lot of Indian and middle eastern dishes, so I go thru the larger packages I can only find in Indian groceries. If you don't use cumin a lot, don't buy a larger quantity. Cumin has a shorter shelf life.
