I love cumin! It is my favorite savory spice and probably the most used spice in Indian cuisine. I love it in tomato soup, on roasted vegetables and of course in my curries.
Last week, the Splendid Table podcast featured Sally Schneider who made an herb salt with garlic and rosemary. Schneider talked about how salt is a great carrier for infusing flavors into food and I had to try it. Of course, I decided to make a spice salt with the flavors I love most – cumin and lemon with a touch of black pepper.
