A classic flavor in European cooking, caraway is also popular in the Middle East and North Africa. In the celery family and related to cumin, this small seed-like fruit has a distinct and irreplaceable flavor. Often found in sauerkraut, Irish soda bread, and American-style rye bread, it is also commonly found in harissa blends (including ours!), and in the occasional dessert. Unlike its cousins cumin and fennel, caraway thrives in the long summer days of Northern Europe, which contributes to its popularity in those cuisines.
