I agree about the drying and I never get the jars of dried coriander, but if you freeze it fresh it still retains a fair amount of flavour/aroma. You just have to use a little more than usual.
I love marmite too. So does my husband. My son on the other hand thinks it's the most disgusting stuff in the universe. No accounting for tastes. And my sister hates coriander. Thinks it tastes soapy. I think it tastes divine. It's one of my favourite herbs.
Nice segue indeed. That's how threads go off the rails. Imagine if in 'real life' we had to communicate in threads.
But you got something there. The connection between Marmite and Cilantro/Coriander is that they are both tastes that you either love or hate.
