Coriander Seeds, Whole

Coriander is the dried seed or fruit of the Coriandrum sativum plant, which belongs to the parsley family. Cilantro is the leaf of this same plant and surprisingly, its flavor is vastly different from that of coriander. Cilantro has a complex but delicate flavor with a hint of pepper, mint and lemon. Coriander has a sweet, aromatic taste with a touch of citrus. Coriander seeds are native to Southern Europe and the Mediterranean region.

During festivals, Romans would throw sweetened balls of coriander. Many times the balls would break apart and rain seeds upon the crowd, thus the origin of confetti!

As with all seeds, toasting them will bring out more of the aromatic flavor. If your recipe calls for cracked or crushed coriander, buy whole coriander and crack or crush it yourself (either spin it quickly in a blender or hammer slightly in a sealable bag). This will produce the best, freshest taste.

"I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome website. A friend sent me your website and I was like a kid in a candy store seeing your wide variety of spices, salts, herbs, etc. Being someone that's not extremely well versed in what I'd consider 'exotic' ingredients, it was an absolute pleasure to see the products' history, uses, taste and general information. Just wanted to voice my appreciation. Thanks so much!"
