  1. Europeans like whole cumin

    Posted by TCarlson on 9th Jun 2018

    My wife is from Europe (Czech Republic), and they like whole cumin on many things - especially potatoes. Whole cumin is not easy to find, but American Spice has a good assortment of various sizes. The spice itself tastes good, but I have not tried the same spice from other sources.

  2. Not bad...

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Mar 2018

    Initially when I opened the package, the aroma was pretty nice. But once I worked with it, I discovered that this particular cumin seed was not the bright, fragrant variety I am accustomed to. Instead, it is the earthy, woody variety that is so common on grocery-store shelves.

    I am certain there are cooks who prefer this variety of cumin. But I am not one of them.

    Honestly, I would like to see more transparency in sourcing. Terroir is important. (eg. If I'm looking for a variety of cumin that evokes Spain and not Poland, I should be able to read that from where the product is sourced.)

    In any case, if American Spice offered two varieties would be a great idea. Because to me, this is NOT the cumin I was looking for.
