Herb Description: Though an ancient spice originating in Egypt and the Mediterranean region, cumin now features in the specialty dishes of nearly every country; it is most commonly used in Mexican and Indian cuisine. A popular spice in medieval Europe, it became a symbol of love and faithfulness, and soldiers' wives would send them off to the wars with a loaf of cumin bread. A mixture of cumin, pepper, and honey makes either a traditional Arabic love potion or a delicious flavor explosion for your main entree. Cumin seeds provide essential minerals such as iron, maganese, calcium, and magensium. Infusions made with cumin seeds have been used to treat digestive problems, congestion, and fever; the essential oil of cumin contains valuable antiseptic and antibacterial properties, and can be helpful to skin disorders.
