Cumin - the ancient pepper substitute

First of all, cumin and pepper have nothing to do with each other. Nevertheless, the spice was used in ancient Rome as a substitute for pepper. Pepper was rarer and therefore more expensive at that time. Since cumin also has a pleasant pungency, it was taken without further ado. Originally, cumin comes from the oriental region, especially in Syria and Egypt, the plant was native. Even though cumin is now experiencing a renaissance in our country and can be found more and more often on the domestic spice shelves, it is mainly used in Indonesia, India and China. Since cumin has a very intense flavor, it is not mixed, as many other spices, but mostly used alone.

Cumin - related to caraway?

Yes, cumin and caraway are related because they both belong to the umbelliferae family. Visually, they don't even look dissimilar, and even the seeds of cumin and caraway could be mistaken for each other. The big difference lies in the taste. While caraway is relatively mild, cumin convinces with its spiciness and pungency. To get a really intense aroma, you should roast the cumin before seasoning your food in the pan, so the aroma unfolds many times better.
