(Carum carvi)

Whole caraway seeds:
1 pound = 4 cups
1 TB = 1/4 ounce

Flavor/Aroma: Caraway seeds have a pleasantly sweet but slightly biting flavor and an aromatic, spicy aroma.
The flavor is a fruity combination of Dill and Anise.

Appearance: Dark brown, crescent shaped; approximately ΒΌ-inch long

Pairs Well With Spring Foods Like: New potatoes, pork, salmon

Caraway leaves make a delicious addition to salads and soups, and the roots can be cooked as you would parsnips.

Caraway seeds are not actually seeds, but the small ripe fruit of the caraway plant. The 'seeds' are used in cakes, cookies, breads, cheese, sauerkraut, pickles, condiments, meats,  and kummel, a caraway flavored liqueur and aquavit.

When boiling cabbage, add some caraway seeds to reduce the cabbage smell.

Caraway seeds can be used to freshen the breath, settle the stomach and relieve flatulence
