Garden Magic – Cilantro to Coriander!

Dried Cilantro

Each spring the cilantro seeds that dropped from the year before sprout around my patio.  It’s been about 10 years since I actually bought and planted the original cilantro, however each year I get another crop from the seeds that dropped the previous year.  This year I decided to gather the cilantro seeds and use them in the kitchen.  Here’s how to save the magic and at the end you’ll have your own homegrown and harvested coriander herb!

Coriander Seed

Let the cilantro go to seed.  After the plants have dried, collect the stems by cutting them right above the ground.  Place the stems carefully into a paper bag so that you can shake off all the seeds (coriander).  If some of the seeds seem to still be a little green they can be dried.  Place the coriander on a shallow baking sheet, preheat the oven to it’s lowest temperature, place the baking sheet into the oven and cut off the oven.

Once completely dry after a few hours place the coriander into an air tight jar and enjoy!  They can also be vacuum sealed in bags if you plan to save them for a later date.  Enjoy!20150731_070645_zpslxpwgwoo
