Caraway Seeds

Caraway is probably most often recognized as the seeds in rye bread, but it is also used in a number of other recipes, such as soups, casseroles, curries, and even liquors, because of its strong aromatic flavor. These much enlarged caraway seeds are in a 1 tablespoon measure, and are in actuality only about 2 millimeters long. The so-called seeds aren’t really seeds, but the fruit of the 2 foot high Carum carvi plant, a native of Asia, Europe, and North Africa. See the nutritional chart below.
