Organic Ground Coriander
The flavor of Organic Ground Coriander is capricious and beguiling. At once warm, nutty, floral, and citrusy, with a perfume both fresh and musky, coriander lingers in the background and makes everything around it better, a well-rounded supporting player. Its presence is often not the standout flavor in a dish, but its absence is noticeable. The volatile oils—the compounds that give a spice its distinctive character—in pre-ground spices will start to dissipate once grinding takes place. To provide you with the freshest and most flavorful Organic Ground Coriander possible, we grind our seeds in small batches in our facility several times a week. We keep our grinds slightly more coarse, to provide a greater surface area for the volatile oils to adhere to, lengthening the amount of time the grind will remain flavorful on your shelf.
Coriander’s origins are difficult to pinpoint, but there’s strong evidence that it emerged along the Mediterranean and traveled along the earliest spice routes. A 1983 archaeological dig in the Nahal Hemar cave in Israel recovered coriander seeds that dated to approximately 7600-6000 BC. Coriander seeds were also found in the tomb of Tutankhamun—King Tut—who ruled Egypt from 1332-1323 BC. Somewhere in its travels through history, coriander split into two cultivars; our Organic Ground Coriander is from the Moroccan variety, with a less aggressive flavor that works harmoniously in a wide range of cuisines. The other cultivar we offer is the Indian Coriander Seed, which is decidedly more assertive in its citrus notes and warm depth.
Tips From Our Kitchen
Organic Ground Coriander is in the same family as carrots; they go together wonderfully in coriander and carrot soup. It works well with thyme and cumin, so mix together to create a spice rub for your next brisket. When making a roast chicken, stir coriander together with butter and tuck under the skin to create delicious pan juices for basting.
Our Organic Ground Coriander is cultivated in Egypt.
