Bob’s Red Mill Caraway Seeds, 8-Ounce Packages

Caraway Seeds are actually the fruit of a biennial herb in the parsley family, known as Carum carvi. Though most people immediately think of putting this peppery little crescent-shaped brown seed in German, Austrian, and Hungarian cuisines, it originally came from Asia Minor. Some say it may be ?Europe?s oldest condiment.? They are highly aromatic and have a distinctive, anise-like flavor. Caraway Seeds are most readily known for their distinct flavoring in rye bread, though they’re also used to flavor sauerkraut and other cabbage dishes, sausage, poultry, beef, breads, crackers, dumplings, British seed cakes, roasted vegetables, cheese and soups. Try the recipe for Onion Rye Bread on the back of the package. You can also use our Caraway Seeds to flavor curries, pickles, and brines. The flavor pairs exceptionally well with garlic. You can toast Caraway Seeds before use to give a heightened flavor.

Carried Away by Caraway!

Bob’s Red Mill Caraway seeds came well packaged and well priced at a genuinely small fraction of the price you would pay in a regular market. The Caraway along with other seeds like sesame and fennel are fabulous in breads. I love corn-onion-rye with caraway and now don’t have to scrimp on the seeds 🙂 Good buy and good seller.

Great product

If you are tired of spending $6+ for a tiny jar of caraway seeds in the supermarket, this product is for you. I have always loved the Bob’s Red Mill products and this one is no exception! Great quality, good price.

Great product, great value

We love caraway seeds in anything with cabbage, and the price for those little jars at the grocery store is unreasonable compared to this bulk package and Amazon’s auto-delivery program. Way better than warehouse stores since it comes to my door!

Great product…awesome price!

This is the only way to buy caraway seeds, if you enjoy baking with them. The small packages are perfect for the freezer, with one in the fridge. These have a great taste perfect for a nice rye bread.
