Local Wild Mountain Cumin Seeds in New York, NY by Burlap & Barrel

  • Wild mountain cumin is sourced directly from networks of foragers in the Hindu Kush mountain range of Badakhshan province in the northeastern corner of Afghanistan.  Our wild mountain cumin seeds are tiny, oblong and black with long stems. Although botanically distinct from common cumin (Cuminum cyminum), our wild mountain cumin is renowned in Afghanistan and throughout central and south Asia for its delicious flavor as well as its medicinal properties. It has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor evocative of grilled meats and sweet caramelized onions.
  • Imported and packed by Burlap & Barrel, a New York based company sourcing single-origin unique spices from artisan farms around the world
  • Each order contains one 1.5 oz jar.
  • Ingredients: wild mountain cumin seeds
