Rye bread lovers are familiar with caraway, but it's also delicious in biscuits and crackers, spiced seed cake, candies, cookies, cheese, pickles, apple dishes like pie and applesauce, noodle dishes, and herb butters. Try caraway seed in creamy soups and sauces and with a variety of vegetables--like beets, potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, green beans, cucumber salads, asparagus and creamed onions. Caraway lightens the flavor of heavy meats and is often sprinkled on mutton, roast pork, liver, lamb and stew meat before cooking.
Caraway is a member of the parsley family, belonging to the genus Carum, and the species carvi. A hardy biennial that self-sows, the Caraway plant is sparsely leafed and hollow with branching flower stems, and dainty, white flowers. The fleshy root, which tastes somewhat like carrots, is yellowish on the outside and whitish on the inside. The tiny, curved seed--which is actually one-half piece of the fruit of the plant--is brown and hard. Archeologists know that caraway seeds date way back--they found the tiny seeds in a pile of 5,000 year-old debri left by primitive Mesolithic lake dwellers in Switzerland. More evidence of its longevity is written; it's in Dioscorides' Ebers papyrus of 1552 BC, as well as a 12th century German medical book and a 14th century English cookbook.
