Organic Cilantro Flakes are harvested in the United States just prior to flowering. Cilantro is an annual herb that belongs to the carrot and parsley family. The leaf, also known as Chinese parsley, is a staple in Mexican, Indian, African and Middle Eastern cuisines. In these regions, however, the herb is more commonly referred to as coriander leaf.
Use in soups, stews, sauces, curries, stir-fries, bean dishes and vegetable casseroles as a substitute for fresh cilantro in salsas, chili, tacos and enchiladas and in other Mexican foods. It is also used in place of the fresh herb in Asian stir-fries. Dried cilantro leaf has a much more subtle flavor than fresh. Generally speaking 2 tablespoons of dried cilantro leaf is equivalent to 1/4 cup of fresh herb.
