I hope that's enough for our needs this year. We'll have even more cilantro next year since it'll reseed beside my shop.

I do think we definitely need some cilantro in the herb spiral, but kept under control. Smiling

It's a bit more than I dried last year. The dehydrator is stuffed!

Of course, you use it more than I do, though. Right this second I would be ok if I never smelled it again! Phew- my hands are still smelly! Note to self- wear gloves when harvesting cilantro!!

Trish, I don't know if this will work for the odor of cilatro but it's worth a shot. I know this works for the odor of garlic on your hands because I tested it & it works. Turn on the faucet & while the water is actively running over your hands, soap them AND rub the soapy hands on stainless steel (anything stainless) while the water is running over them. No more garlic smell.

Cilantro was an acquired taste for me. I remember when I very first tasted it and didn't care for it at all. Now I love it Thumbs up

Beautiful stash you have there Trish!

Hope your hands smell better this morning Green Grin!

Ann- I use that trick as well, and it does help me with the cilantro, but didn't cut it all the way. BTW- works for onions for me as well as garlic!

Lemon juice?

Thanks for the tip about the onions though. I guess I like the smell of onions because it's never bothered me. Hilarious!
However, I never considered it might bother other people when I'm out & about so I think I'll start doing it when I know I'm going to be leaving the house. Thumbs up

Dave, tell us about the herb spiral? Pictures, too, please.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
