Chili powder does contain cumin, but it's not a prominent flavor ... one of the reasons I suggested it as a substitute.

Here's more info from Cook's Thesaurus:

"cumin = comino = cummin = jeera Pronunciation: KUH-min or KYOO-min or KOO-min Equivalents: 1 oz. = 4 tablespoons ground = 4 1/2 tablespoons whole seed. Notes: Cumin is a key ingredient in Southwestern chili recipes, but it's also widely used in Latin America, North Africa, and India. Freshly roasted and ground cumin seeds are far superior to packaged ground cumin. Substitutes: caraway seeds (use half as much) OR black cumin seeds (smaller and sweeter) OR caraway seeds + anise seeds OR chili powder"

It's easy to remove thyme leaves from the stems (is that what you're talking about?) ... just run your thumb and index finger along the upside down stem.

I don't like cilantro...to me it tastes like soap. I always replace it with Italian parsley...may not be authentic, but I like it better.
I don't like fennel or anise, either.

I like most spices but some of them don't like me!

Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves give me severe heartburn when I have more than a hint of them. They are all my favorite spices too!

Some of my most beloved desserts and pies use these spices......I'm so sad.

But sometimes I will indulge to my heart's content, knowing I will suffer for it later!
