      Single-Origin Wild Mountain Black Cumin

      $9.75

      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. 

      About Single-Origin spices: Spices in our Single-Origin line come from a single place, whether it be a single farm, a small network of family farmers, or a small group of traditional foragers.

      Botanical name: Bunium bulbocastanum

      Ingredients: Wild mountain black cumin.

      Recipes: 
      Chicken Korma
      Spinach with Black Cumin and Garlic

      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.
