Black caraway

I absolutely love this spice and couldn’t find it for years. I like adding black caraway seed to white bean dishes along with whole coriander seed and ground allspice. I also like sprinkling them on top of boring rye breadsticks I make. Thank you NY spice!

Kizha or black caraway seeds

I’ve grown to love these seeds through their use in Afghani bread, and in Middle Eastern foods. I sprinkle them on a hot cereal combination of wheat and oats every morning. You may have tasted them in Armenian string cheese where they add a wonderful flavor for which there is no substitute.
