History: In use for over 4,000 years, Cumin was mainly used for its digestive properties and as a spice. The ancient Greeks and Romans used it much as we use black pepper. In the Holy Land, people used it to pay their debts and taxes with it. In the Middle Ages, feudal lords sometimes paid their serfs with Cumin for services rendered, before it fell out of favor with Europeans as a spice; at the same time, it began to grow in popularity in South America.
