Home grown under ideal natural conditions!! These Coriander seed are the round, tan, papery seeds of the cilantro plant.
Coriander is used extensively in Asian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Indian, Latin-American and Mexican cooking.
Coriander is used as one of the spices in many curry dishes. Use coriander seed or powder in posole, enchiladas, beans. It makes a great component in spice rubs for fish and chicken,other meat, carrots, roasted potatoes, roasted cauliflower, chili, corned beef & cabbage, sausage, salsa verde and adds a nice bright flavor when making homemade pickles.
Coriander is mellow and subtle. It has an earthy, lemony flavor that works well in combination with other spices, particularly cumin. The small, creamy brown seeds of the coriander plant give dishes a warm, aromatic and slightly citrus flavor totally different to fresh coriander leaves.
To bring out the fragrance in coriander, toast the seeds. Put them in a dry heavy skillet and set over medium heat for a few minutes until they become fragrant. Grind the whole seeds to release the spice's flavorful aromatic oils.
