Caraway seed whole, powerhouse from the aniseed family

Caraway seed whole is a spice that has been used since the Middle Ages. It is used in the kitchen and not least for its medicinal properties. It has a spicy, aniseed-like taste. It is often described as a flavour that tastes somewhere between cumin and dill. You use the spice mainly in simmering dishes and soups, but you can also use it to season homemade sauces. It is an important ingredient in rye bread. At Natural Spices you can order this spice online in a package of 400 grams, 1 kilo or 25 kilos.

What is whole caraway seeds?

Caraway seeds whole comes from the caraway plant. This plant is found in large parts of Europe, Asia and North Africa. The caraway seeds whole that you can order online at Natural Spices come from the Czech Republic. The spice is also called kummel, after the German name kümmel. It is widely used in Germany, for example in sauerkraut and bread. The seeds of the plant are very small, about three to four millimetres long. The warm, aniseed-like spice provides a pleasant aroma to various recipes. As it has a strong flavour, you should best dose it to your own taste.

The difference with cumin and fennel

Caraway seeds very often get confused with cumin seeds. Given their taste, this is not strange, but it really concerns two different spices. Although both have a spicy, aniseed-like flavour, caraway seeds are twice as strong and somewhat less bitter than cumin seeds. Their shape is also only slightly different. Cumin seed is straight in shape, while caraway seed is a more crooked. Caraway is regularly confused with fennel as well. Although this is also has an aniseed-like flavour, it has a somewhat grassy like note to it and is mainly used in combination with lamb or pork.

Caraway seeds whole are also healthy

As with many other herbs and spices, caraway seeds have healthy properties. The spice is mainly known for its ability to prevent stomach complaints and thus bloating. In addition, it contains minerals such as calcium, iron and chromium, vitamins B1, B2 and B3 and a large portion of fibre. Buying caraway seeds online means that you not only get a flavouring but also a natural medicine.
