Coriander/Scandinavian/Viking Foodstuffs

Both the leaves and the seeds are used in this plant but have very
dissimilar tastes. The seeds are used in the making of curry blends as well
as baked goods such as ginger bread. You might also find it in sausages...
The leaves, not stems, are used whole in soups, stews and many southwestern
and Mexican dishes as well as in the Orient, India and the Caribbean.

Native to the Mediterranean and the Orient, coriander is related to the
parsley family. It's known for both its seeds (the dried, ripe fruit of the
plant) and for its dark green, lacy leaves (cilantro). Interestingly, the

The coriander leaves are commonly known as cilantro or Chinese parsley. The
cilantro leaves have a lively, pungent odor and flavor that lend themselves
well to highly seasoned food. It is widely used in Asian, Caribbean and
Latin American cooking. Choose leaves with an even green color and no sign
of wilting. They are best when harvested young. This stage of plant growth
is the vegetative stage of the plant cycle.

Cilantro grows best in early summer or fall when soil temperatures are below
75 degrees. Growth at higher temperatures causes the plant to "bolt" or
develop a flower stalk. It is best to use the cilantro leaves before the
plant bolts.

After harvest, cut the stems and store the cilantro, stems down, in a
container of water and cover with a plastic bag, securing the bag to the
glass with a rubber band. Refrigerate. Change the water every two to three
days. Or cilantro may be stored for up to one week in a plastic bag. Before

cloves, coriander, cumin, fennel seed, fenugreek, mace, nutmeg, red and
black pepper, poppy seeds, saffron, sesame seeds, tamarind and turmeric.
