Recently, we had cilantro growing in our garden. We enjoy growing the herb for our Mexican dishes, but we have a hard time going it. It quickly goes to seed.
Outside recently, one of us thought that coriander was from cilantro seed. If you are familiar with these two flavors, you know they are entirely different. I giggled to myself when I tasted one of the cilantro seeds and proved that they really are coriander.
It was fun to separate these little pods from the dried cilantro plant. A little touch from the food processor, and we will have the freshest coriander we've ever had.
