Chinese Parsley

13 Mar , 2015  

coriandrum sativum cilantro Chinese ParsleyLatin Name: Coriandrum sativum

Description: The herb, Coriandrum sativum, gives us two distinctly different flavors for the kitchen. The lacy foliage is “cilantro”, a parsley-like garnish with a distinctive, fresh fragrance that is indispensable in Mexican and Southeast Asian salads, soups, and meat dishes. The dried seeds are “coriander”, a pleasantly aromatic spice that is much used in European and Middle Eastern stews, sausages, sweet breads and cakes.
