Chief Roasted Geera (Cumin)
Cumin or "Geera" as it is commonly known in the Caribbean can be found in most large grocery chains today. However, the roasted version can be quite troublesome to find. Our Chief Roasted Geera is unique in its aroma since roasting changes the flavour of the geera when it is heated. As whole spices are heated, they release aromatics. These aromatics break down and recombine to form new compounds that add diverse complexity.
After roasting, the cumin seens become intense, grassy and earthy. This is a completely different flavor that you get! Use this where you would normally use cumin. Remember, a little goes a long way!
