Coriander fruit.


Spice of the month for June 2004:


Coriander fruit (not the seed) (Coriandrum sativum)

More background on coriander.

Not to be confused with its leafy counterpart (also known as cilantro), coriander fruit (often misidentified as a seed - I didn't know that until about 5 min. ago) has a pungent and vaguely sweet aroma and taste.

It is a common ingredient in curry powders and garam masala, but turns up all over the world.

So, what has coriander done for you lately? Go out there and play with it, and then tell us about it.
