    3      Rounded Tsp   Caraway Seed
    1      Fifth         Good Quality Vodka
 
 Work the caraway seeds in a mortar for a few minutes. The seed only has
 to be cracked a little.  Add the seed to the vodka and shake well. Let
 stand for two weeks in a warm but not hot area.  Strain with cheesecloth.
  If seed particles remain, strain through filter paper.  This has a
 slightly brownish color due to seeds being used rather than oil of
 caraway which is used in commercial Aquavit.  My husband loves this and
 we make it quite regularly.
