Fresh coriander, known as ‘cilantro' in the US, is a tender green leafy herb with a distinctive, pungent citrus flavour. It is used widely in Asian, Chinese and Mexican dishes. Heat diminishes the flavour, so add it to cooked dishes like curry recipes at the last moment or use raw.
Store packets in a compartment in the door of the fridge for 2-3 days, it wilts quickly and does not freeze or dry well. You can chop and use coriander stems too - even the root, which has a deeper more intense flavour.
