Coriander is the dried seed of a parsley-like plant called Coriandrum Sativum. Pale brown in color, Coriander has a warm, distinctive aroma and a pleasant taste. Mild and sweet, yet slightly pungent, ground Coriander is most often used in curry powder and spice mixtures. It is also used as a flavoring for pastries, buns, cookies, stews and beans. Also great in all your poultry and meat dishes.
