Herb of 2017 – Cilantro and Coriender 

Cilantro is the plant and coriander is the seed.

Cilantro leaves are a major ingredient in salsa and guacamole.

Cilantro is tastier fresh than dried. Freeze it or make flavored oil. Cilantro grows well in average well-drained soils in full sun or light shade. Sow seeds directly in garden soil after the last spring frost. Butterflies love cilantro.
To harvest the leaves, cut stems near the ground level, 1/3 plant. To harvest the seeds, let them ripen on the plants. Clip the brown, round seed heads and place in a paper bag. The seeds heads will dry and open, allowing the edible seed to fall out.
Cilantro leaves and coriander seeds flavor Asian, Indian, Mexical, Spanish, Tex-Mex and Thai dishes. Cilantro enhances the flavors of peppers, onions, tomatoes, beans, chicken and yogurt. Both the seeds and leaves have culinary uses. All parts of the plant are edible. The seeds may be used whole, crushed or ground in cooking. Coriander seed is used in the making of gin as well as many other distilled spirits and herbal liqueurs.
