Coriander Powder

Description

Coriander is one of the oldest of herbs and spices. The fruit of the coriander plant contains two seeds which, when dried, are the portions used as the dried spice. When ripe, the seeds are yellowish-brown or tan in color with longitudinal ridges. Coriander has a flavour which combines lemon and sage, with a sweet-note as undertone. It's a cooling spice. The Greek and the Romans thought it to be an aphrodisiac. By the third Century B.C the Romans knew it was an excellent seasoning for food.
