Some of the comments from fans of Wild Mountain Cumin:
I use it on almost everything. This is so much tastier than regular cumin. It adds a wonderful flavor to everything I cook. I use this with recipes that call for cumin and other recipes that don't mention cumin.Amazingly Fragrant Cumin. The Wild Mountain Cumin is wonderful--very tasty with just about any fish, meat or vegetable dish. A marked, noticeable difference in taste from other store-bought cumin, which seems very dead and dull by comparison.
