Black cumin seeds


Badakhshan, Afghanistan

In the steep and jagged Hindu Kush Mountants of Afghanistan, a rare and ancient varietal of cumin—a botanical cousin to the common variety—grows wildly, and according to Milkstreet, black cumin derives its extra warmth and pungency from its “native terroir.” Local villagers handpick these highly climate-resilient seeds, rarely seen outside of local communities until recently, by hand and dry them under the blistering Afghan sun to concentrate flavors even more. We work with Roots of Peace, an organization that helps the communities of war-torn areas prosper through agricultural export.

    Amazing spices. The wild cumin seed is my all time favorite. Had never had it before. It goes in everything thing. I'm an acid spice user but Spice Tribe has won my taste buds.
