History…

Cumin comes from a seed which is actually the smallest plant in the parsley family.

Use of this seed dates all the way back 5,000 years to the Egyptians who used it as both a spice & an ingredient in their mummification process.

At this time, Greeks & Romans also regarded cumin as an essential spice.  They also believed that the cumin seed promoted love & fidelity so they made sure it was carried by attendees of weddings & cumin seed bread was sent with soldiers as they went off to battle.

In medicine cumin has been used for centuries as a gargle to treat laryngitis, to treat swelling & to relieve hiccups.
