Caraway Seed, Whole

Our Caraway Seed is discontinued and no longer available.

If you’ve eaten rye bread, you’ve eaten caraway seeds.

Our caraway seeds are super fresh and aromatic. They have a distinct, mild anise flavor. Earthy, with a hint of citrus, pepper, and licorice.

For those into genealogy, caraway is a member of the parsley family. However, there is no relation to Elvis Parsley. (Ooof! Terrible joke. Sometimes I can’t help myself!)

Consider toasting the caraway seeds and adding them to breads and salads. Yum!

Caraway works well with garlic, pork, and cabbage. Soups, curries, veggies, sausages, breads, and cheese.

We bring our caraway seeds in fresh and direct from the Indian Himalayas. And like all of our spices, we supply them to award-winning chefs around the country. We give you access to the exact same lots. Lucky you!


We normally ship within 1-2 business days after receiving your order.

Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays are not business days for us. We need some rest too. ;-D

We put together a Shipping FAQs page if you’d like more details on what to expect.

While Overnight is guaranteed, FedEx is no longer guaranteeing 2 Day service, though they should arrive more quickly than other options. Remember, Overnight and 2 Day items require one business day processing time, but we will ship these out first each day.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Would hate for you to be unhappy. The world has enough unhappiness. We're here to make you happy. Okedoke?

Caraway seeds from Reluctant Trading Post

I made a Milk Street recipe, beef, onions and caraway seeds. Fantastic flavors.

Helplessly in love with Reluctant Trader

Well, I’m ruined. I will never use seeds, herbs, peppercorns from anywhere else. I love your packaging, labeling and entertaining communication. Mostly tho, it’s the freshness and delicate consideration of subtle flavors in your combinations of peppercorns. The smoked peppercorns and medley have totally finished my dishes in ways I have never thought. I have given pepper and grinders to all my special family last Christmas, and have heard back how they too, are thrilled. I’m just a simple kitchen cook, not a chef, but you have taken my cooking to another level and now I’m passing the word along.

Love this company

Always happy buying from Reluctant Trading. Shipped super fast and the quality is fantastic!

excellent all the way around!

The quality of the products, the ease of ordering, and the excellent follow through with shipping makes me anything but reluctant in ordering from them again or recommending them to my friends and family!
