Organic ground cumin seed: oriental spice that has conquered the whole world


Organic ground cumin seed is also known in the Netherlands as 'djinten' or 'djintan'. Also 'jintan', a corruption of the Indonesian name for cumin, can occasionally be found. Whatever you call the spice, its warm and spicy flavour is of added value in more dishes than you would initially think. Cumin has its origins in Turkey, the Middle East and India. The organic ground cumin seed that you can order online from us comes from Turkey and is grown organically there. You can buy the ground seed in a package of 150 grams or 1 kilo.

The taste of organic ground cumin seed


The sharp and warm taste of organic ground cumin seed is earthy and aniseedy. It strongly resembles organic caraway seeds, but it has a stronger taste. Cumin has a less pungent flavour and a slightly bitter taste. Organic ground cumin seed is also regularly compared or even confused with turmeric. turmeric, however, is extracted from the roots of an entirely different plant. The cumin plant is related to the dill, coriander and chervil plant. These also have a spicy and slightly bitter taste.

In which dishes do you use organic ground cumin seed?


Organic ground cumin seed is a spice that you can use in many dishes from various international cuisines. Cumin goes well with curry, coriander and parsley.

Organic ground cumin seed is delicious in hot cheese dishes and sauces, in couscous and tagines and an indispensable ingredient in Mexican chilli con carne. Besides application in these dishes, it is also used in traditional Dutch dishes. A special twist is added to various stews (mainly sauerkraut) and endive dishes by adding cumin. Cumin also goes very well with meat, especially lamb.
