Ground cumin is made from the seeds of the Cuminum Cyminum plant, which is native to the Middle East and India. Cumin has been used as a spice for thousands of years, dating all the way back to ancient Egypt. It has a distinctive nutty, peppery flavour, and a warm aroma, that is well suited to curries and other savoury dishes.
