    Cumin: The Little Spice That Could :
    Have you ever wondered about that mysterious spice called cumin that sits unused on your pantry shelf? Somewhere through the expanse of history, many of us have lost touch with the near miraculous flavor and healing properties of this little spice.
    The use of cumin dates back to biblical times, with references found in both the Old and New Testaments. It is a popular spice in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines, and retains a prominent place on the daily dining tables of Moroccans and some Greeks. Cumin arrived on American shores by way of Portuguese and Spanish colonists, who valued its seeds for cooking as well as for herbal remedies.
    In modern clinical studies, cumin has been proven to have potent long-term beneficial effects on stress, blood pressure, memory and cognition, as well as immediate relief from digestive discomfort. In fact, in a 2009 study published by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes in Bethesda, cumin, along with dill, caraway, coriander and fennel, was found to have more potent antioxidant effects on the body than Vitamin C.
    Cumin has a smoky aroma that enhances dishes with lentils, beans, chicken and couscous. Once you familiarize yourself with the smell and taste of this unique spice, you will begin to sense it in dishes where it occurs. Cumin also mixes beautifully with certain other spices.
