Cumin

Cumin (Cuminum cyminum) comes from Western Asia, where it has been cultivated since Biblical times. People cook with the fruits of the plant, which are usually referred to as the seeds.

Cumin is a very weak spice often used in highly spiced cuisines, especially Mexican and Indian. 

You'll want to buy cumin in very large containers. Commonly, you'll use 1 to 4 teaspoons per pound of meat.

For some unknown reason, cumin might be confused with caraway.
