It has recently been all over the mass-media that genetics play a big role in whether or not we like cilantro. According to those large news outlets, people either love it or hate it. I don’t know if this is true, but I personally like it sometimes and then like it a little less at other times. There are dishes that I make that are greatly improved by adding cilantro, and then there are dishes that I would rather leave it out….
Anywho, whether you love it, hate it, or like it sometimes and don’t like it other times, here is a picture of the cilantro I started in an egg carton.
Cilantro has anti-microbial properties- it’s particularly effective against salmonella! It also has great vitamins and minerals like potassium and vitamin A. If you don’t it, try it in your Tex-Mex dishes. You’ll be glad you did!
Here are my other little seedlings:
