Caraway is in the same family as parsley. You can use its seeds for rye bread, sauerkraut, sausage, cheese, cabbage, and soups.
This doesn't transplant well so it is better to sow directly into the garden. Sow the seeds thinly in early spring or late autumn. Thin the seedlings to eight inches apart. Mulch young plants during severe winter-like conditions. You can also grow caraway in a container.
It is a biennial plant so it will reach its full height in its second year. At that point it can ready up to 24" high. You want to harvest the seeds when they have turned brown but before they burst and then finish drying them inside.
