I love the taste but to smell it straight out of the container I have to totally disagree with you - no WAY does it smell like an armpit - it smells like dirty feet :oops: :P

Coffee, sizzling bacon, fresh baked bread, garlic and shallots roasting in evoo, onions and garlic sauteing. However, when you think of it when you are hungry it all smells good.

I am grieved to have differences with psiguyy and kitchenelf on cumin. I love its earthy aroma!

I think it is an acquired taste, mudbug, one which has eluded me. I also do not like its relative corriander and the leafy green stuff.

If you are referring to cilantro, that's an uphill climb for me, too. Love the taste in sparing amounts, but that's about it.

Yes mudbug, cilantro. I get so p...................ed at the checkers in the markets, I buy Italian parsley and they always say oh I see you like cilantro. NNOOOOOOOO it is parsley. Anyway it always bothers my stomach. I usually substitute parsley or just leave out.

But I absolutely LOVE the taste of cumin - and cilantro - yummmmm - it's just, well, smell it - you'll see

earthy - that's a good description - kinda' like your highschool sweetie coming in off a football field - he too has that "earthy" smell
