    Add 2 tsp cumin seeds to a dry frying pan and toast over a medium heat for 1-2 mins till they smell aromatic. Tip into a pestle and mortar and crush them, or use a bowl and the bottom of a jam jar. Add to the bowl. Pour in the cider vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to mix together. This is your mojo verde.
