Caraway seed is small and brown in color, with a slightly curved shape. When ground, it is golden brown with light beige flecks and has a fine, powdery texture with evidence of the seed fibers. The flavor of caraway seed is warm, slightly sweet, and slightly pungent, with notes of anise, licorice, and citrus. The seed has a strong, pungent aroma that is similar to anise or fennel.

Caraway seed is commonly used in breads, cakes, and pastries, as well as in savory dishes such as sausages, cheeses, and pickles. It pairs with cumin, coriander, and paprika.

Caraway seed is popular in European and Middle Eastern cooking. It is often used in traditional dishes such as sauerkraut, rye bread, and goulash, and is also a common ingredient in spice blends and rubs.

CONFUSIONS

In the family
Cumin is often confused for caraway and the nomenclature for the herb in Slavic countries blurs the distinction between the two. Called "Roman caraway" or "spice caraway" cumin is actually spicier than its similar-looking relation. In addition to being hotter in taste, it is lighter in color, and bigger in size.

In the same boat
Cumin has eight ridges running lengthwise along its boat-shaped body with oil canals between them. It is yellow-brown in color and looks similar not just to caraway but also the other schizocarp herbaceous spices: fennel and anise seed.

USAGE HINT

Caraway seed is best added towards the beginning of cooking to allow time for its flavors to develop.

QUICK FACT

Caraway, along with dill and spearmint, are among some of the oldest herbs known and used. In ancient times caraway was used to mask the smell of foul breath.
