This is also know as cilantro or Chinese parsley. The pungent leaves are used in many dishes throughout the world. This is one herb that you will either love or hate. The plant is very hard to grow and successive plantings are needed to have a constant supply. During the warmer months the coriander plant will bolt quickly before producing many leaves hence the home gardener does not grow this herb with much success as a rule! Coriander is great in curries, and a lot of Asian cooking. It adds a great flavour to soups and is a match made in heaven for salsas and a lot of Mexican food. Coriander should be stored in the fridge in an airtight container or bag to ensure longevity of life. This is one of the most popular herbs used in cooking. It can replace parsley in any dish to change its flavour and add a new twist!
