Additional Information:
Organic Black Onion Seeds. Nigella aka Black Cumin, Fennel Flower. Unrelated to both onion and cumin! Native to southern Europe and western Asia, has long been cultivated as a spice. The ripe seeds have a camphor-like scent and a bitter, later aromatic taste. May contain traces of celery seed or mustard seeds.

One of the easiest and tastiest seasonings for any dish, black onion seeds are ideal for meals needing a little extra crunch and flavour. The deceptively titled seeds actually come from a type of buttercup, gently dried to add a wonderfully earthy aftertaste. With their trademark subtle, nutty taste, black onion seeds are sure to become your new favourite spice, perfect for adding a pinch of punch to any cuisine.

The seeds of the annual flowering plant, Nigella Sativa, have been prized for their healing properties since time immemorial.  While frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance. The earliest record of its cultivation and use come from ancient Egypt.
Black seed oil, in fact, was found in Egyptian Pharoah Tutankhamun’s tomb, dating back to approximately 3,300 years ago.  In Arabic cultures, black cumin is known as Habbatul barakah, meaning the “seed of blessing.” It is also said of it that it is “a remedy for all diseases except death.”

Storage Advice:
Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.

• Store in an airtight container.
• Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
• Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
• Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
