Herbs - Wild Mountain Cumin
The wild cumin purchased by 123 Farm is hand-picked by foragers in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan. The rocky soil cultivates an ancient and resilient varietal of cumin with a warm pungent flavor and irresistible aroma. Botanically distinct from common cumin (Cuminum cyminum), the wild mountain cumin is renowned in Afghanistan and throughout central and south Asia for its delicious flavor as well as its medicinal properties. It is used when making chili, tacos, curry, or fajitas (which is often!).
Cumin seeds are good for stress, respiratory disorders, in managing diabetes, and against cancer.
