This seed like spice comes from caraway fruits that are most commonly found in Europe and Western Asia. Similar to a carrot plant, caraway has a pungent aroma that comes from the oils carvone and limonene.
Caraway is most commonly used as a spice in breads, particularly rye bread, liquors, and casseroles. It is also found in sauerkraut, and to add flavor to cheeses like havarti.
This spice has a tisane (herbal tea) made from its seeds which is good for colic, loss of appetite, to dispel worms, and to help with common digestive disorders.
