Cuminum cyminum Also called comino, this ancient spice dates back to the Old Testament. There are descriptions in the Bible of how it was cultivated (Isaiah 28:25-27) and in the New Testament, the practice of paying it in tithes is mentioned (Matthew 23:23). The seeds are from a plant native to the Nile Valley. Shaped like a caraway seed, cumin is the dried fruit of a plant in the parsley family. Its aromatic, nutty flavored seeds come in three colors: amber (the most widely available), white, and black. Both black and white are found in Asian markets. White cumin is interchangeable with amber, but the black seed has a more complex, peppery flavor. Cumin is available in seed and powder forms.
