What to know about Coriander:

Did you know that Coriander is a great balancing spice to fix over-use of certain spices in a dish, particularly the more pungent ones like clove, cumin or even garam masala?


Coriander is native to Southeastern Europe and grown extensively all over Europe, Middle East, China, India, and Turkey. It is used as a herb, seed and ground spice. This herbaceous plant grows up to 2 feet in height with branching stems, featuring deep green soft, hairless, bi or tri-lobed leaves. The mature plant bears small light pink color flowers that subsequently turn in to globular or oval shaped fruits (seeds). The seeds are oval, measure about 4-6 mm in diameter with central hollow cavity containing two vertical vittae containing some important essential oils.

The seeds are ready for harvest when the plants turn brown, leaves begin to dry and fall. Immature seeds are light green in color and taste bitter. To harvest, the crop is cut, tied in small bundles, and dried under the sunlight for several days before they are separated.

The best coriander seeds November 5, 2012
Reviewer: Thea from Alberta  
Hands down the best coriander seeds I've ever used, it's worth it to take the extra time to grind them as the fragrance released is exquisite and lends a wonderful brightness to curries.
