I can't remember what it's called right now...but it's long and oval and looks like a little itty bitty watermelon! I remember finding it on mom's pizza and chicken and HATED it growing up!

That doesn't sound like an herb, Angie - more like a spice or a vegetable.

How long was this ingredient?

I'll bet it's a spice then. It is about the size of a grain of rice and I hated it! LOL!

Angie, I know those things, but am brain dead right now and cannot think of what they are called - anise seed, maybe?

Unlike you, I liked them on mom's fake pizza for us kids: white bread, pizza sauce, some mozz, and those seeds.

The herb I don't like as much as the others? Probably tarragon. Never got the results out of it that I was expecting.

Angie - I know what you're talking about now!! They're not Caraway seeds, but Fennel Seeds!!! They do look identical to Caraway, except are frequently paler or more greenish in color; but while Caraway is used primarily in baking (like rye bread), in sauerkraut, & many German & Danish dishes, Fennel Seed is most frequently used on pizza, in Italian sausage, poultry, etc. I've never seen Caraway on pizza, but have often seen Fennel seeds on it.

And yes, they do look like tiny little watermelons - lol!!

masala indian food herbs

I can't get used to masala mix herbs that go into indian food. It can be too strong in meals. But I enjoy few indian meals, like butter chicken or lamb korma so something must be wrong with me.

I like most herbs. I only like cilantro in small amounts.

My Uncle Herb was pretty nice.

I don't like cilantro - I'm one of those people who thinks cilantro tastes like soapy water.
