Caraway seeds

The oldest spice used in Europe.

Add caraway to spice up dishes that are more difficult to digest: cabbage, pork, certain potato dishes, goulash soup, kale, red cabbage and red beet.

- Usage -

It is a very popular spice for salty pastry. Caraway has a very distinct flavour that is why you add only a small quantity of other spices. Because of this distinct flavour, use ground caraway instead of whole caraway seeds in children's nutrition.
