Caraway seeds

About the ingredient caraway seeds. Including 322 recipes with caraway seeds, nutrition data, and where to find it.

 

What are caraway seeds?

Caraway seeds are usually used whole, have a pungent, anise-like taste and aroma that comes from essential oils, mostly carvone and limonene.

They are used as a spice in breads, especially rye bread. It is thought that seeded rye bread is denser partly because the limonene from the caraway fruits has yeast-killing properties.

Caraway is also used in liquors, casseroles, curry and other foods. It is more commonly found in European cuisine such as sauerkraut.

It is also used to add flavor to cheeses.

One day I was in the mood for rye bread but I had no rye flour, so what did I do? I made a loaf of bread that tastes so much like the real thing, I am not sure I will mess with real rye (and the extra gluten) anymore.

German Cabbage Rolls (Kohlrouladen) - traditional
German Cabbage Rolls (Kohlrouladen) - traditional
StarStarStarStarHalf star

"Kohlrouladen" used to be a staple on the menu for regular people in Germany during winter time. The relatively long preparation and cooking time pays out, because it can be easily reheated over a couple of days and gets even better and tastier then. Fried potatoes complete the picture, but you can cook the potatoes also in the pot with the sauce, if there is space left. This recipe can be varied in many ways, be it the stuffing (ground meat here), or the sauce. The recipe is as traditional as it can be; the ingredients are adjusted to availability in North America (like Savoy cabbage in lieu of "Weisskohl", bacon to replace "Speckwuerfel"). For sure the ground meat can vary depending on preferences or diets - I bet quite often in the "good old times " regular people did not exactly know what's in the ground meat they got from the butcher - at least it was some meat, for most of the families only once a week.

Very tasty. It's hard to go wrong with potatoes and leeks. They seem a perfect combination especially when it comes up to soup, such as this chunky leek and potato soup. It was very easy to make, and packed with great flavors. If you prefer smooth soup, puree it in a food processor or blender. In whichever way, it's always delicious.
