Cilantro

Often used in salsa’s, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine, cilantro adds a lot of healthy, fresh flavor to your kitchen. Freshly chopped cilantro is an excellent source of potassium, is low in calories, and is good for the digestive system. It is best to use fresh cilantro in cooking since it does not dry very well. Add chopped leaves at the at the end of the dish, just before serving to maximize flavor. Cilantro blends well with mint, cumin, chives, garlic, and marjoram. Store by freezing the leaves in cubes of water; the leaves can also be dried however, they lose a lot of their flavor this way, which explains why growing your own is far better than buying it from the spice rack.
