Cumin

Taste and Aroma

As one of the most aromatic spices, cumin gives off a pungent earthy aroma that is warm and almost sweet with hints of pine and lemon. The flavor is strong and slightly bitter with a fresh and somewhat herbaceous finish.

Quick Kitchen Tips

Storage:

  • Store cumin in a cool, dark place. Buy the amount that you think you will be able to use within six months.

Portioning:

  • 2 tablespoons of ground cumin = 2 ½ tablespoons of whole cumin seeds

How to use when cooking:

  • To bring out the best flavour of the seeds, they are usually toasted in a dry frying pan or with a little butter before adding to other ingredients. The essential oils in cumin are not as volatile as many spices when exposed to heat which makes it a great spice to use when seasoning dishes that will be roasted in a hot oven or cooked a long period of time.

Recipe Recommendation

Lemon Cumin Chicken Ingredients:

Whisk the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper flakes until smooth.
Rinse the chicken legs with cold water, dry them off with a paper towel and place them in a large bowl. 

Cover the chicken legs with the marinade and make sure it is spread evenly over all pieces. Leave the marinated chicken for at least 4 hours or ideally overnight in the refrigerator.

Add a small amount of vegetable oil into a roasting pan. Take the chicken out of the marinade and stir-fry it 4 to 5 minutes on each side until cooked through.
