Cilantro is the greens from the coriander seeds.  They have a powerful flavor and some people do not like them, but I have eaten and juiced them for quite some time and they are very good and good for you. 







     A few times we have tried to grow them and this year they are doing nicely and are getting some flowers.  You can dry them and also put them in the freezer for a short while.  But it is wonderful fresh or in the salads.








You can eat the whole plant and use as a salad and steep as a tea for medicinal aids.  It is excellent in the sauces and gravies and dressings and spreads for the bread and waffles.

coriander has been used from ancient times and is a common herb for many countries

the cilantro plant produces the coriander seeds tha you read about in the Bible.


  "We have the Bible plain and clear upon this subject. We should not leave the work of the six working days to be done on the Sabbath. Through Moses the Lord said to the children of Israel, "Tomorrow is the rest day of the holy Sabbath of the Lord; bake that which you will bake today, and seethe that which ye will seethe, and that which is left lay up to keep until the morning." "The manna was like coriander seed, and the color like bdellium. And the people went about and gathered it, and ground it in the mills or beat with a mortar and baked it in pans and made cakes of it." Thus there was something to be done in the preparing even of the heaven-sent bread for the children of Israel. This was a test for them. God desired to see whether or not they would keep the Sabbath holy. The Lord told the children of Israel that this work must be done on the preparation day--Friday. On that day they were to bake that which they would bake and seethe that which they would seethe."

 "And in the morning the ground was covered with a strange substance, in small, white grains of the size of coriander seed, hard, and pleasant to the taste. The children of Israel knew not what it was, so they called it manna, which means, What is it? Moses said to them, "This is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat. This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded, gather of it every man, according to his eating, an omer for every man according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents."    

     The people gathered the manna, and found that there was a sufficiency for the entire company. They "ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and made cakes of it; and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil." We are also told that "the taste of it was like wafers made with honey."   

     According to the direction of Moses they were to gather an omer (about five pints) for every person; and they were not to leave of it until the morning. Some attempted to keep a supply until the next day, but what they laid by bred worms and became offensive. The supply for each day was to be gathered each morning; for as the heat of the sun increased, the substance melted and disappeared.'
