Great product - glad to find it again

I could have sworn I once bought this via Amazon. But they don't have it here I am at the source. One person I know swears by nigellla sativa seeds for her health. She hates the taste so she follows a teaspoon of the seeds with a big gulp of (gulp!) diet Pepsi.

I like to sprinkle them on food - e.g., boiled potatoes sauteed in coconut oil infused with garlic and turmeric until slightly brown. Then I add a teaspoon or two (depending on the amount of potatoes) of black cumin.

I found out that one of my favorite wildflowers, love-in-a-mist, is - ta da! - nigella s. So I'm soaking some seed to see if it will germinate. If so, will do successive plantings, just because it's so pretty. Meanwhile, I'm ordering another pound, this time from the source.

So yummy, especially in Indian food. Organic, too? Yay! I had a hard time finding it because I have always known it as Kalonji Seed.

Great Product at a Great Price

I was delighted to find organic nigella seeds for such a great price. The seeds are delicious in Indian food, middle-Eastern food, and assorted other uses.
