Organic ground coriander has a warm, citrussy flavour that’s light and subtle and which pairs well with many other flavours. Coriander and cumin are culinary partners and rarely is one used without the other. Coriander is the main ingredient in many spice blends like Indian ‘garam masala’, Ethiopian ‘berbere’, Moroccan ‘ras al-hanout’ and ‘chermoula’, and ‘baharat’ from the Gulf states. So, it’s a versatile spice to have in your pantry and to use with gay abandon!
Apart from its fine flavour, coriander spice is recognised for its health benefits in traditional and modern herbal medicine. It has strong antimicrobial, antispasmodic, diuretic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and a history of being used to treat urinary tract infections, painful menstruation, skin conditions and as a mild sedative.
