Cumin is a member of the parsley family. It comes mostly from Iran and India, though it is native to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and Egypt. It is actually grown in many places, since it is rather easy to grow and adapts well to a variety of climates. Cumin has a distinctive, slightly bitter yet warm flavour. Replace every 6 months or so.

The worlds most popular spice. True pepper is actually a berry (not be confused with paprika, cayenne pepper, chilli pepper, red pepper and bell pepper).
Whole black peppers are the dried berry fruit containing a single seed. The dried fruit flesh gives the wrinkled apearance typical of black peppercorns. Pepper gets its heat from the piperine compound found in the fruit skins and the seed itself. The skin also contains important flavour compounds which give black pepper its distictive citrus and woody notes. White pepper has the fruit and skin removed which determines the difference in flavour between black and white pepper.
