Xinjiang Cumin (Zi Ran, 孜然)
Cumin has long been important in China's far-west Xinjiang autonomous region, where this cumin seed is grown. Xinjiang's Turkic Uyghur people, whose food draws from both Middle Eastern traditions and Chinese cuisines, introduced dishes such as cumin lamb and BBQ skewers (shao kao) to China and the world. Xi'an and other Muslim Chinese areas also make frequent use of cumin. This cumin seed is recently harvested, fresh and fragrant.
Note that this bag is 4 ounces, while the label states 3 ounces. We found that we could add more to the bag than anticipated, so we did!
