Coriander seed is one of the sweeter spices out there, which is odd considering the leaf of the coriander plant – what we call cilantro – is often called spicy and herbal. It is often described as sweet and floral with hints of white pepper and Navel orange. You might call it cultivated, both in agricultural and worldly senses.
The flavors make coriander a popular spice across all oceans, from Portugal to Mexico, to India. It’s also become a popular flavor in beer. For clever cocktails, make a simple syrup spiked with toasted coriander seed.
