Red River Coriander is a savory, herbaceous heirloom varietal grown by a collective of Hmong farmers along the Red River in the northern highlands Vietnam. Coriander, the seed of the cilantro plant, is ubiquitous in Vietnamese and other South East Asian cuisines where the entire plant — seed, leaves and roots — are used to season and garnish dishes.

Red River Coriander is smaller and darker in color than many other varietals, but don't be fooled by its petite size. It is aromatic and boldly flavored, with earthy undertones and just a touch of lemon zest. It's a little bolder and more savory than our Nile Coriander (now out of stock.)

We've never tasted a coriander that is quite this savory before. Use it as a finishing spice (it's packed in a grinder, so it's perfect for keeping on the table next to your salt and pepper!) and add it to dishes that are going to simmer for a long time, so that the nutty, herbaceous flavor is allowed to truly bloom.

  • Origin: Hải Dương, Vietnam
  • Process: Sun-dried
  • Alias: Cilantro seed
  • Ingredients: Coriander seed (Coriandrum sativum)
  • Tasting notes: Cilantro Root • Green Herbs • Zest

COOKING

SOURCING

Native to the Eastern Mediterranean, coriander is believed to be one of the oldest spices in the world. It has been found in ancient Egyptian tombs and sequestered in caves above the Dead Sea that were inhabited 8,000 years ago. From this region, coriander seeds have spread across the globe to become a key ingredient in many culinary traditions.

We've partnered with DACE, a social enterprise in Vietnam, to connect with the farmers growing our Red River Coriander. It is grown in the Red River Delta of northern Vietnam by an association of Hmong farmers who are part of the same cooperative that also grows our Buffalo Ginger, Purple Stripe Garlic and Drumstick Lemongrass

The coriander is grown by communities of Hmong farmers in Vietnam's northern highlands, who are learning to grow higher-value crops and transitioning to organic and regenerative agricultural methods. We're honored to support them in that work, and to share their zesty, herbal coriander with you!

Yum!

I love coriander seed and really appreciate the built in grinder to make the flavor as redolent as possible. It grinds well and (obviously) keeps the spice as fresh for use as possible.

So good, I purchased the bulk size,

I use coriander in many of the spice mixes I make for cooking. I love the citrus and grassy tones in this variety. It pairs well with the food in many cuisines.

Hate the container

The container (grinder?) gets in the way of how I want to use the spice. When forced to buy in this grinder (ie, no other options available), I immediately break it open and put it in another jar. To use, I crush it with a mortar and pestle.
