PACKAGING GUIDE

Coriander seeds are peppercorn-sized and light brown to dark yellow in color. The seeds have lighter ridges running transversely and have a somewhat papery outer shell. The seeds have a citrusy tang flavor, but also undercurrents of earthiness and slight nutty notes. These last two are accentuated when coriander seeds are ground.

Coriander seed is very versatile. It can be found in American Southwest dishes (mole sauces) as well was in Indian recipes (curries). Coriander seed is often found paired with cumin or in dishes that include black pepper, garlic, clove or cinnamon. It is best added near the end of the cooking process but has been found in savory recipes as well as sweet bakes. Whole coriander seed is also a main component of pickling spice mixes.

This spice is a great contender for buying whole and grinding as necessary. The seeds grind easily and they are aromatic and flavorful when freshly milled.

QUICK FACT

In the US (and in Canada) the moniker coriander refers the seed of the cilantro plant, while in the other parts of the world coriander can refer to either the herb part of the plant or its seed.

Though cilantro, the herb portion of the plant, has a polarizing taste—some folks report soap, some report fresh citrus—coriander, the seed portion of the plant does not have this same prejudice.
