Thread: Great Cumin

    Default Great Cumin



    I bought some incredible cumin in Morocco and I thought the approximate
    cupful would last forever. It is SO GOOD I find myself adding a bit to
    many more things that I ever used it in before. It is very aromatic and
    slightly sweet, quite a bit more flavor notes than the Mexican style
    I have always used.

    I hope I can find something close to it when I run out.

    It won't last long if you try the recipe that I did tonight. Get a small
    chicken... or chickens. For each chicken puree one onions and two large
    cloves of garlic and add some salt and about a tsp. of cumin. Smear the
    chicken with the micture and let it sit for an hour. Then put it on a
    spit and cook it on the rotisserie for about an hour, longer if it is a
    bigger bird. Baste with melted butter. This is my wife's favourite
    method for chicken, thought I always end up the one doing it.

    Would it be possible to order it on line?

    Reminds me of something I posted last September:

    | I saw the title of a recipe for chicken with cumin and honey, but that's
    | about that's about as close as I came to *following* a recipe. The chicken
    | was dried, trussed, and set up on a vertical roaster with the infuser
    | loaded with water and garlic. I made a coating of honey, freshly-ground
    | cumin seed, kosher salt, and olive oil. The coating was simply "gooped" on
    | with my hands -- and let me say, *that* was a sloppy job! Once the chicken
    | was coated, it went into the grill for about an hour, until the internal
    | temperature reached 165F.

    I wouldn't have guessed there was a difference. I wonder whether
    I should look for it in something other than an Indian store?
