Nigella Sativa (Carom Carve) is a very old spice, there is evidence going back to the Stone Age of its use. It is the seed of a Biennial Plant that has delicate leaves and white blossoms. Nigella Sativa use declined a few hundred years ago, but it has begun a revival in the past 50-70 years. Nigella Sativa is mainly used in Austrian and German cooking. This seed is used to flavor breads and pastries. The Nigella Sativa Seed is smaller than traditional Caraway Seed and has more of an intense flavor. Also often called Black Caraway or Kalonji seeds.
Nigella Sativa is a well known ingredient in English seed cake and is used in other desserts as well. It is also chewed after meals as a digestive aid. It is good with potatoes, cabbage and carrots; also sausages, duck and goose.
