Organic Ground Caraway 35g Std Jar details and description
Steenbergs Organic Ground Caraway is the powdered organic caraway seed that is processed carefully in small batches to preserve the fresh aromas. Organic caraway powder has the characteristic flavours of organic caraway - warm, earthy, robust and a smell that reminds you of the medicinal aromas of anise and fennel, while the flavour has an initial minty freshness, followed by the medicinal qualities of anise and perhaps a bit of fennel.
Caraway is a biennial plant that grows about 60cm high (24 inches) and has pale-green, finely defined leaves on hollow steams, The flowers are white tinged with pink and umbrella shaped, with similar shape to those of carrots. The root is thick and tapering and is pale in colour and has a similar flavour the the seeds. To prepare the caraway seeds, the seed heads are harvested while covered in dew to keep the seeds in the heads. The complete stalks are stored in a dry place for 7-10 days to dry through, before threshing to remove the seeds. The seeds are 5mm long and are split into two crescent-shaped, dark-brown seeds.
The taste of caraway seeds is warm, earthy, bittersweet and nutty with hints of anise and eucalyptus. Caraway is indigenous to all of Europe, as well as North Africa, Asia and into India; the Netherlands is the largest grower of caraway seed. For more information on caraway fruit, try Ingredientia and Wikipedia.
In cooking, caraway has a great affinity with pork and sausages. But it also works well with cabbage and at Steenbergs we use it in our organic garam masala and organic harissa amongst other blends.
