Cilantro, coriander, cumin (cumino)

bigobeckaJune 3, 2009

I have a cilantro plant that has already gone to seed. It is my understanding the seeds are coriander and you grind them for cumin/cumino. Is this correct? At what point do you pick the seeds? Do you just let them dry before use?

Cumin and Coriander are two different things. Coriander is the dried seed of Cilantro and is round like a b-b shot.

Cumin seed is narrow and pointy on each end.

I don't know when to pick the seeds. I always miss mine. This year I intend to wrap some cheesecloth or paper around them to catch the seeds when they dry and fall.
