Ground Fenugreek Seeds

Fenugreek lends a subltle sweet taste to pickles and chutneys. The word Fenugreek comes to English from Latin for ‘Greek hay.’ Whole fenugreek seeds are hard and dense, making them difficult to grind at home. This fine powder is a handy way to include fenugreek in cooking.

Fenugreek has a sweet, nutty flavor with an alluring maple aroma. It is primarily used in Turkish, Egyptian, and Middle Eastern cuisine, where it turns up in a vast array of dishes. Cooks in India typically roast these seeds before grinding them to impart a sweeter flavor in their dishes. Much like fennel, fenugreek has been grown for centuries because it was believed to have healing powers. It was even an integral component in "holy smoke," a part of the Egyptian ritual for embalming the dead. An old Arabic greeting references the beneficial virtues of fenugreek: "May you tread in peace the soil where fenugreek grows."
