Cilantro, Dried Leaves

Cilantro is the leaf of the young coriander plant, Coriandrum sativum, an herb in the parsley family. The leaves are picked and dried and chopped to make the seasoning we have before us. The seeds of the mature plant are called coriander. We primarily use the dried cilantro because we rarely will use a whole bunch of fresh cilantro before it spoils. Cilantro in commonly used Mexican and Middle Eastern dishes, and in soups and bean dips. See nutritional chart below.
