We found the Caraway seeds quite sharp and unpleasant to eat... Perhaps they could do with being ground first? Anyway, unlikely to try this again...

Served with Christmas day Gressingham Duck (amongst other things) prepped as directed Christmas Eve and all disappeared quickly on Christmas Day. Proved a simple but tasty accompaniment.
