Caraway seed, also called “Persian cumin,” is the fruit of a plant from the same family as fennel, carrots, and anise. It is native to western Asia, Europe, and North Africa. The fruits have a similar aromatic quality as fennel and anise (very licorice-like); traditionally, it has been used often as a spice in breads as well as for desserts and liquors. Some of my favorite recipes with caraway include my Nightshade-Free Plantain Curry Lasagna and Nightshade-Free Paleo Lamb Curry.
