Drying Coriander

Some of my bolted cilantro were finally dry enough to pick as coriander. In order to harvest them as dry coriander, you have to wait until the seed pods are brown and have ridges.

Here's a mix of harvested coriander. I had a few not quite ready pods but I thought I would pick them anyway and see if they dried on their own.

Hi Holly
I have been drying my coriander seeds as well. Some I will grind and use in cooking and others I will save and sow for next year.
I love the smell of both the leaves and the seeds.

Maureen, I agree with you. I love the smell of the leaves and the seeds. I think enough seeds dropped to self sow for next year in my containers so I'll likely be using mine for cooking. Fun!
