Ajowan (Ajowain) Seed - DISCONTINUEDs

Ajowan is a member of the same family as dill, caraway and cumin. The seeds are used as a spice primarily in Indian cooking, where it is also known as bishop's weed, lovage, ajwain and carom. Ajowan is typically used to season vegetarian dishes, breads, curries and fish.

Ajowan is usually ground in a mortar and pestle, or crushed by rubbing between the hands or fingertips before using. When used whole, it is best to lightly bruise the seeds first, to release the volatile oils, which increases the flavor. Ajowan seeds can be stored indefinitely if kept from light in airtight containers. Like many Indian spices, Ajowan is believed to have medicinal properties.

Why Buy Your Spices at Silver Cloud Estates?

Why buy spices online when they are so readily available at your local store.  The answer is quality and price.  The spices sold at your local store are often a year or two old.  As spices age, they loose much of their flavor.  Silver Cloud's spices are always fresh, never old.  Our products are also an excellent value.   When you need spices," click" on Silver Cloud Estates for the freshest products at great prices.
