The bittersweet, beautiful flavor.

Whole Caraway Seed
(carum carvi)
Caraway Seed, Whole seed

Native to Asia and northern Europe, the caraway plant is one of the oldest members of the parsley family and has been used for a variety of purposes since 3000 BC.

The seed of the plant is split into two halves that form a curved shape with tapered ends and has a warm, bittersweet taste. Caraway pairs well with sauerkraut, sausage, cheese, cabbage and soups.

Fun Fact: Caraway seeds were valued by the Greeks and Romans for their medicinal properties. And during the Middle Ages, it was used as a digestive aid.

Our Whole Caraway Seed is only caraway seed. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
