Product Abstract: Originally from the Mediterranean area, Cumin is a small annual herb about 50 cm (20 inches) high with deep green, narrow feathery leaves and tiny white or pink flowers, followed by small oblong seeds. In use for over 4,000 years, Cumin was mainly used in cooking. The ancient Greeks and Romans used it much as we use black pepper. In the Holy Land, people used it to pay their debts and taxes with it. During the Middle Ages, feudal lords sometimes paid their serfs with Cumin for services rendered, before it fell out of favor with Europeans as a spice. Today it is popular in the cuisines of India, the West Indies, and Central and South Americas.
