Jet-black and nutty, perfect addition to breads.
Our Al Baraka Nigella Seeds are grown by a family of farmers in Fayoum, an ancient agricultural community in central Egypt. Nigella (a member of the buttercup family) has been used for flavor and health for all of recorded history. Perfect for baking and cheesemaking, nigella adds a savory, roasty flavor and aroma. Sprinkle on breads and savory pastries, grind for spice blends or make a paste like tahini.
The Arabic name of nigella seeds is Habat Al Baraka (Al Baraka means "blessed" and "habat" means seed).
