In the kitchen,Caraway is the spice that gives Southern German and Austrian foods, be it meat, vegetable or rye bread, their characteristic flavour. It is also popular in Scandinavia and particularily in the Baltic states.We use the whole fruits, but even the powder is strongly aromatic. Usage of the ground spice is a working compromise; another method is wrapping the fruits in a small piece of linen cloth (or simply a tea bag) so that it can be removed before serving.
Caraway seeds have the ability to neutralize meat dishes, promote digestion, stimulate the appetite. Apply a poultice of powdered seeds to heal bruises. Try taking a teaspoon of water with a few drops of essential oil to relieve flatulent indigestion.
