Coriander, ground

Ground coriander seed has a mild, sweet, slightly pungent, citrus-like flavor with a hint of sage. Coriander complements, curries, Middle Eastern dishes, vegetables, stewed fruit, chutney, pickles, cakes, biscuits, breads and lentils.  Coriander is the common name of the seed of Coriandrum sativum, a feathery annual herb of the family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae). Native to the Mediterranean and Middle East regions, the herb is cultivated in Europe, Morocco, and the United States for its seeds.  The tender young leaves of the coriander plant, known as cilantro, are also used for seasoning, but their flavor is entirely different.  At 800 X 600 resolution, the photo to the below left is the actual size of a teaspoon of ground coriander seed:
