Organic Coriander Ground 30g
Country of Origin: India/Egypt
If you’ve tasted fresh coriander, it’s likely that you’ve formed an opinion about it. Maybe you love it. Maybe you think it’s like chewing metal shavings. (Maybe you love chewing metal shavings. We won’t judge… much). Luckily, organic ground coriander isn’t nearly as divisive a flavour as its fresh counterpart. The dried herb has a powerful, fruity aroma that boosts the savoury tang of curries, marinades, pickles, and dry rubs. It’s used extensively in Indian, Middle Eastern and Asian cuisines. Whole seed organic coriander is similarly inoffensive to sensitive palates. (Don’t forget to let your picky eater know that the meal they’re scarfing down does, in fact, contain the aromatic herb. Their face will be almost as good as the dish itself!) There’s no controversy here: adding dried organic coriander to your dish leaves even the most metal-averse people asking for more.
How to use organic coriander?
Organic coriander can be cooked, consumed, and used aesthetically. Like most spices, coriander’s uses are dependant on the form it comes in.
Organic coriander has two main uses in cooking. It’s a great way to add a savoury twist to your chillies, marinades, and poultry dishes. The aromatic properties of organic coriander can cover up basic cooking mistakes (here’s looking at you, wonky salt shaker lids) and salvage your kid’s first attempts to make the family dinner (you’re going to need to choke it down somehow!). Less well known is coriander’s uses in baking. Organic ground coriander enhances and deepens the buttery flavour of bread, cakes, biscuits, and pastries. Who knows - maybe that’s the secret ingredient to your coworker’s famous apple pies?
You’ve come to love coriander. Any metallic associations are a sharp but fading memory. Do you know what else is fading? Your acne! That’s right - organic coriander can be mixed with a pinch of turmeric to create a skincare concoction that will help your skin to feel clean and blemish-free. Its beautiful leaves can also be used as garnishes and decorative greenery among other herbs and plants.

Country of origin
While better known for their pizza, Italy is also the birthplace of coriander. Also native to parts of Southern Europe, Northern Africa, and Southwestern Asia, coriander is an easy-to-cultivate plant when given the right amount of sun and water. The herb is ancient - it’s been found in ruins as far back as 5,000 B.C. and is mentioned in the bible. (We recommend you avoid eating coriander this old, though; it’s probably lost some of its panache by now).
Storage / Packaging
Organic coriander should be sealed at ambient temperature. The container should be kept in a dry area - and kept out of direct sunlight. When stored correctly in its original box, our dried coriander has a shelf life of 1.5 years from its packaging date.
