Organic Caraway Seed
Caraway 'seeds' are not actually seeds but rather the split halves (mericarps) of the dried fruits of the Caraway plant (Carum carvi) that are used as a spice. The Caraway plant belongs to the Apiaceae or Umbelliferae family which are strongly aromatic flowering plants, commonly referred to as the celery, parsley or carrot family.
The dark crescent shaped caraway 'seeds' resemble cumin seeds but have a less pungent aroma but rather more bitter lemon balm with notes of pepper and anise (mild liquorice).
Caraway seeds have long been used in Rye bread, Caraway seed Cake, biscuits and pasties as well as in savoury dishes such as curries, soups and stews.
Use sparingly at the start of cooking. (Note that dry frying can intensify their flavour which can dominate the dish with a bitter flavour if too many are added.)
