CORIANDER RESCUE BUY. We are looking for 30 Rural Rising members to help a young and hopeful farmer couple from Buguias, Benguet. They have 30 kilos of Coriander or Cilantro (leaves) and we have agreed to take it all.
Back read the story:
A Mexican friend has always lamented that Mexican restaurants in the Philippines uses too little Cilantro at all. He says with not a little bit of frustration that any self-respecting Mexican dish must have lots of Cilantro in it. The reason for this, I think, is that it is quite difficult to find fresh Cilantro in the Philippines. Surprise, we are rescuing 100 kilos of Cilantro from a beleaguered farmer couple that could not find buyers for this much. Dust off your Indian, Mexican and Spanish cookbooks because we are taking it all and giving it to you for a fantastic price. Those members who know what do to with fresh cilantro, please share your knowledge to the rest of us. Here is what we know so far: Cilantro does not cook, it is used raw in the kitchen, just like parsley. It will be added to the dish after it is cooked. It is perfect to flavor fish, like seafood mussels with cream. Cilantro flavored dishes have become more and more popular among gourmets. On the other hand, cooking fresh coriander in combination with other spices adds an exotic note to a dish. Ginger, garlic, curry, coconut milk, and cilantro will make a delicious chicken.
Price: P300 for 1 bundle, approximately 1 kilo
