  1. Having people from Iraq mixed in our family, they use cumin in most everything ( noticed their wooden spoons were yellowish ) from all the cumin they use, supposedly it’s good for your joint, curious how true that is! Very keto friendly recipe 👍😋

    1. I have really grown to love cumin and fennel seeds. The best aroma comes from the seeds, not the ground stuff. If it’s good for joint then my bad joints are certainly getting a boost. Thanks and best wishes!

      1. Not clear why I had never investigated their deliciousness until a couple of years ago. I’m usually more inquisitive than that. They are just such great punctuation marks! ;->

        1. I totally agree with you. Did you know that the seeds are dried and sold whole or ground and used as spice or a garnish. They can be also be added to curries or chutneys to enhance a mildly sour taste. Ground dried seeds are widely used in Indian cooking!

        2. I got a package of frozen ones once! Emphasis on ONCE! I ended up tossing them as they were pretty much inedible. Tossing food is something that I rarely do!!!

        3. Me too. Some foods lose their flavour, texture and everything good, with freezing. I don’t like tossing food either. These days I try to shop with a list because impulse buying is the number one cause of food wastage.
