Single-Origin Wild Mountain Black Cumin
Our black cumin (also known as kala jeera) is harvested by foragers in Afghanistan’s Hindu Kush mountains. Savory, aromatic, warm and pungent, this black cumin is prized in central and south Asia and is rarely found in the United States. Use it in biryanis, curries, vegetables and breads.
Ingredients: Wild Mountain Black Cumin from Hindu Kush Mountains in Afghanistan

Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
You can visit their own site here or find more of their spices on Keep Oakland Alive.
