Organic Caraway Seeds by Hatton Hill Organic. Organically grown, harvested and dried in Egypt. Packed in the UK.

Caraway, also known as Persian cumin, is plant that comes from the same family as carrots and is native to western Asia, Europe and North Africa. Thanks not only to being named Persian cumin, caraway seeds are often confused with cumin seeds, as they look very similar, but in terms of taste and aroma, they're miles apart: caraway seeds boast a liquorice flavour with distinctive citrus notes while cumin has a warm, earthy flavour that's slightly pungent.

Our organic caraway seeds are are boon in baking, bringing their distinctive flavour, aroma and texture to rye, soda and other breads, and they work a charm in a variety of cakes – traditional British seed cake is a fantastic treat that uses caraway seeds – cookies and crackers.

Caraway seeds are also useful for adding a distinctive flavour and aroma to curries, soups, vegetables, sausages and even liqueurs (caraway seeds give Scandinavian spirit aquavit its aniseed flavour). And if you like to pickle your own vegetables (think sauerkraut, pickled beetroot and pickled gherkins), caraway seeds are extremely useful to have on hand. In terms of specific ingredients, they pair well with garlic, pork and cabbage.

Try adding caraway seeds to potato salads and coleslaws, grind them up and drop a pinch of the powdered seeds into tomato-based sauces and soups, sprinkle them over roasted potatoes or other vegetables – or onto baked apples served with ice-cream if you're feeling like a sweet treat. From these little seeds, your culinary inspiration will grow and grow!
