Coriander







Early summer and late spring brought the aromatic Cilantro alive in the garden. This herb isn't for everyone. I personally love it's pungent flavor in everything from soups to of course pico de gallo.



Technically I guess the whole plant is the Coriander plant and the leaves are referred to as Cilantro. I have read conflicting information about that point. I do know this, when the plant goes to seed (rather quickly I might add) the seed is known as Coriander.



I like that in a plant. Dual uses in the kitchen.
