Harvesting Cilantro

So what have I been doing today? Hmmm…. forgetting that the kids don’t have school. Apparently, it’s Columbus Day. Then taking them to school. Then getting reprimanded by the secretary for not watching television or whatever. I swear I didn’t see it on my Facebook feed. Or read the newspaper. Or look at a calendar.

Anyway . . . after that it was time to harvest the cilantro. Winter is coming and all of that.

I’ve been reading a few articles on how to dry out the cilantro. Lucas also asked if we could use the seeds. I googled it. I found this article about using the seeds.

I have finished drying the cilantro. I used the oven method that I read about in the Taste of Home Canning issue.

Now I will be looking up information about how to get the smell of cilantro off of hands. I’m going to smell like cilantro for days. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, right?
