Caraway Seeds, Dutch
Caraway has a sharp, stimulating aroma and is sometimes confused with fennel or cumin. Its flavor has a nutty, bittersweet sharpness with a hint of citrus and anise. Native to Asia and parts of Europe, we get our caraway seeds from Holland.
Caraway seeds are used in rye and brown breads, crackers, sausages, soups and stews. Cheeses are commonly made with caraway. Chew raw caraway seeds to aid in digestion, promote appetite and sweeten breath.
