Turmeric and cumin often appear together on ingredient lists, and while they may look similar and have earthy notes, they certainly aren’t interchangeable!
Aromatic cumin has a warm, earthy flavor with a bit of both sweet and bitter notes. With a hint of citrus, it is most known for its spicy, nutty flavor. It’s a key ingredient in sazon, the balanced blend of spices found in countless Latin American dishes: cumin, onion, and garlic create that irresistible savory umami. For an extra punch of flavor, add some cumin in your spice rub and give your chicken a sprinkle! That being said, when you’ve gone off the recipe, use cumin sparingly as it is both sharp and intense and can easily throw your flavors off balance.
Earthy and peppery, turmeric has made its way around the globe. From the Caribbean to India, many dishes owe their signature golden hues to turmeric. Unlike cumin, you can be a bit more liberal with turmeric; it will add an earthy flavor without being overwhelming. Of course, turmeric can certainly stand alone as a seasoning.
