Carwia......Carvi.......

In algeria we use alot of different spices and one in particular is carwia  also know as carvi or caraway ....i have asked many time my dh what exactly it is and he could never tell me

 
 Caraway plant

In my dh family their are a few good cooks and they always told me to  use carwia ... when using garlic and tomatoes as it goes hand in hand ... but smell it i knew it can be used alot more than that


so i had to goolge it to find out exactly what it was a this is what i found  Carwia

the seeds can also be ground up  but dont leave for too long like most spices it will loose it fullness
