Black cumin is known by several names, but the taxonomic name is Nigella sativa, which should appear on the package or bottle. We get our black cumin seeds from the Penzey’s shop in Lakeville. Here’s the link for the shop.
Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
While you can find this (intermittently) at some of the area grocery stores, we like to shop for this and other Asian cuisine ingredients at United Noodles, 2015 E. 24th Street, off Franklin Avenue, a few blocks east of the intersection with Hiawatha Avenue. This is where you can get green tea matcha (powdered green tea), too. This is advertised as the largest Asian grocery in the area. Of course, every kind of noodle is sold here. Too hard to get there? They will ship it to you, Monday through Friday. Here’s the website link.
