September 1, 1999

CUMIN: GET IT
September 1, 1999
I stumbled upon a simple recipe for Cumin-Baked Chicken and, in the process of planning to prepare it, started thinking about cumin itself. Cumin is one of the spices that frequently has to be replenished at my house. We like the zip it puts in scrambled eggs and it’s a prime ingredient in our chili. In fact, cumin, which is a standard ingredient in Indian, North African and Latin cooking, is one of the spices that contributes essential flavor to both chili and curry powders. You can buy it ground or in seed form. Roasted seeds have a deep, earthy flavor, while the powder of dried seeds tastes a bit hot.
