Wild Mountain Cumin
Burlap & Barrel

Wild Mountain Cumin

Regular price $ 10.95

Hand-harvested by foragers in the mountains of Afghanistan, this unique varietal of wild cumin is renowned for its bright, savory flavor. 

This cumin was my introduction to Burlap & Barrel. One quick taste and you’ll see why I’ve been their biggest supporter. I don’t want to oversell it, but this varietal (Bunium persicum) is really different from common cumin (Cuminum cyminum).

You can grind it and even toast it but sometimes I like to just open the bottle, take in a deep breath, and get a natural high. 

You probably have favorite ways to incorporate cumin into your cooking, but if you need some inspiration: add it to chili, sprinkle it over hummus, or use it in Spanish-inspired and Moroccan-inspired dishes.

I love the idea of doing trade in countries where there aren’t a lot of opportunities and Burlap & Barrel are doing just that. I hope you are as excited about the cumin as we are. A visit to the Burlap & Barrel website will reveal many other treasures worth your consideration.
