Cumin from Alep
Cumin is the fruit of a least two year old wild growing Plant. Before the cumin plant reaches maturity the fruits will be cut off and hung to dry. Then it will be beaten to separate the seeds which is the cumin and dried under the sun.
Its bitter, warm and lightly sweet taste completes a Chilly con Carne just the way you know it from vacations.
Try cumin on a salad from oranges.
