Coriander is the seed of cilantro. It comes from an annual herb in which all parts of the plant are edible but most commonly only the leaves and the dried fruits (coriander seeds) are used in cooking and baking. It has been used in cuisines around the world for centuries and can be found growing in much of Asia, Europe, and Africa and can be grown here in the US in USDA hardiness zones 2-11 which is roughly 50°f -85°f.
More importantly perhaps, is not what coriander is, but how it is used in cooking. Coriander seeds and their use is well recorded in Latin American and Mexican cuisines. Posole, enchiladas, and even commonly found in many Indian curry dishes. The seeds can be added whole to many dishes and simmered in things like soups or sauces. They can also be lightly toasted in a pan or oven then ground fresh and added directly to a dish, rub, soup or sauce to really bring out the flavor.
Often toasted before grinding or use in pickling to bring out its flavor, coriander is most commonly used in soups, spices rubs, curries, garam masala meats like beef, lamb, chicken and more. Coriander goes great with other spices like bay leaves, cumin, chili peppers, garlic, nutmeg, fennel, orange, lemon and even lime zest. In more recent times, note of coriander can also be found in many modern craft beers.
