    do you like Cilantro?

    a friend gave me a bunch of cilatro plants. he told me he heard the smell wards off aphids..so i planted them throughout my garden. now i have a cilantro "situation". it is starting to get hot in my area, so i expect the plants to go to seed soon.

    i've been using the stuff by the fistful. salsas, chinese steamed fish, etc. really trying to keep the plants trimmed down.

    the other day, i made a pea rissoto, and on a whim..i chopped up a LOT of the herb and stirred it in at the end. whoa! it was awesome. all grassy and herby..very fresh tasting.

    you like it? i did a slaw with lots of the stuff, and it taste amazing. it has to be good for us. it just taste like it is.

    anyone?

    my mom cooks and strains a fish broth..and stirs in copious amounts of cilantro for a soup. it is like a veggie soup of pure cilantro. the heat tempers the flavor.

    Nope. I'm one of those folks for whom cilantro tastes like soap.

    I used to hate it, now I love it. I put it in a lot of stuff during the summer. You can make a cilantro pesto out of it as well. Pour it into ice cube trays, cover with plastic wrap or store in batches in small freezer containers and pull one out when needed.

    LOVE the stuff.

    I find I trend toward ethnic cuisines that know what to do with it.
