Whole Caraway Seeds are about 1/5 inch long, slightly curved and tapered at one end. The hard, brown seed shells have lighter colored ridges. This seed is a member of the parsley family and has a warm, sweet, slightly bitter, dill and anise-like flavor. Caraway seeds have a very pungent aroma.

Use to flavor cakes, cookies, biscuits, cheese, applesauce, cottage cheese and fruits. This product's most recognized use is in rye bread. Use it when making bread or rolls. Great with sauerkraut, cooked pasta, potatoes of any kind and cabbage.

Caraway is also used in liquors, casseroles, and other foods, especially in Central European and Northern European cuisine. It is an ingredient in sauerkraut, for example. It is also used to add flavor to cheeses such as havarti. Akvavit and several liqueurs are also made with caraway. A carminative, a tisane made from the seeds is used as a remedy for colic, loss of appetite and digestive disorders and to dispel worms. Caraway seed oil is also used as a fragrance component in soaps, lotions, and perfumes.

The roots may be cooked as a root vegetable like parsnips or carrots.
