"Caraway is a hardy, biennial herb which is native to Europe and Western Asia. First year plants resemble carrots, growing to about 8 inches tall with finely divided leaves and long taproots. By the second year, two to three foot stalks develop topped by umbels of white or pink flowers, which appear from May to August. Some varieties may flower the first year. The seeds are small, brown and crescent shaped."  Jeanine M. Davis

"Caraway has long been prized for the excellence of its aromatic dried seeds (actually fruits) as a condiment and an aid to digestion. Caraway gives rye bread and various cheeses their characteristic flavors and is the base for a well-known digestive liqueur, Kummel (German for "caraway"). Bakers scatter the seeds over cakes, and cooks often add them to cabbage and sauerkraut not just for taste but for their gas-relieving properties."

Herbal Lemonade Boil 2 cups of water and pour over a 2" sprig of rosemary OR 1 heaping tablespoon of lavender flowers. Steep for 5-8 minutes and then remove herbs. Add 1/3 c. sugar or honey and stir to dissolve. Pour into a 1 quart jar and add 1/4 c. lemon juice. Fill the rest of the way with cold water. Chill and taste, adjusting lemon and sweetness to taste. Serve over ice, with a small fresh sprig of rosemary or lavender if you like.
