Caraway Seed

Native to central Asia, caraway seed (which is actually the fruit of the plant, and not the seed) has a long history as an ingredient in many things, including alcohol (the famous Nordic aquavit) and love potions. We can’t vouch for that last bit, but we can tell you that caraway’s cozy, pungent flavor lends depth to spicy harissa paste, but also plays nicely with simple breads and even apple slaws and chutneys.
