Growing & Saving Coriander (Cilantro) Seed - One of the reasons to eat this amazing herb is because it binds to heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum, making it easier to transport them out of your body. Learn how to grow slow-to-bolt coriander; prune it to maximise your yield; then harvest, process and store your seed to grow more free herb plants next season.

f you’d like to harvest the mature brown seed, either to plant next year or to grind and use throughout the winter, wait until the majority of the seed turns brown. Then, cut off the seed heads along with a few inches of stalk and hang them upside down in a brown paper bag. When the seeds are fully dry, they will fall out of the heads and into the bottom of the bag. Store the dry seed in a lidded glass jar in a cool, dry location. For the best flavor, grind it right before use.
