I'm in the love cilantro camp. I'm in the U.K. and both the plant and the seeds are called coriander.

One of my favourite ways of using it up, (I buy big bunches from the local Indian shop) is to make a green mojo. Spanish Cilantro Green Sauce Recipe - Recipe for Mojo de Cilantro - Sauce of the Canary Islands

It also freezes reasonably well, it separates when defrosted but a quick whisk and it emulsifies again.

I knew that it did that colour thing to some people. I didn't realize it could be a sign of anemia. Good to know.

I'm trying to remember if that happened when I had anemia back in 1970. I was living in Denmark and if you are eating a regular Danish diet, you are eating beets quite regularly.

My iron level usually comes back on the high end of normal (it always has). And I know when I've eaten beets, 14%. I also have the asparagus gene and the ability to smell that specific smell in cilantro. Interesting to know. I was trying to remember if I had metallic mouth before I developed my pine nut allergy. I've often wondered if it was because of the country of origin that I reacted...don't dare try pine nuts to find out if I'm still allergic or not.

The only pine nuts I can stand are the ones Dad gets in Arizona.
