For a good while we had cilantro. And now we have coriander.

Fragrant, tasty greens of cilantro. Used in a variety of cooking methods, a wonderful addition. Chicken, marinated in fresh squeezed lemon juice with fresh cilantro (lots of each) and then grilled over charcoal is fantastic.

It has gotten hot so our cilantro bolted, made flowers and dried up. After flowers there are seeds and the seeds are coriander. We will plant some seeds in August, save a jar for us, and give the balance out in our CSA for our members to use in flavoring their food. I just love a multi-purpose plant.
