As another small step towards avoiding waste, we've removed the elastic bands from our Ocado herbs. So although the leaves and stalks might not look as neat and tidy as before, they will still taste just as good.
Coriander is often considered the 'Marmite of herbs' as you either love it or loathe it! It has a fresh, citrus flavour and with a strong and distinctive aroma. The leaves and shoots are often used as a garnish and it's a popular flavour enhancer in cuisines as diverse as Mexican, Indian and Chinese. Coriander stems have a stronger flavour than the leaves and can be added to this whole range of curries.
Although native to Southern Europe and the Middle East, coriander is now grown worldwide and is a slender, solid stemmed plant, growing up to 60cm tall.
Coriander retains its freshness and flavour even when frozen, helping to minimise food waste. Either place into a bag and seal or, freeze into ice cube trays with oil and use as an easy recipe ingredient. You can freeze coriander for up to 4 months.

Quality gone from bad to worse
This product has never been very fresh but usable if you have a little bit of patience to go stalk by stalk and pick edible bits. The last one came soaked in its rotted brown soup and I had to discard the entire bag. Very sad.
Slimy and rank
Never had a good lot, always slimy, going to buy frozen from now on
The coriander lottery
Very hit and miss as to if itll turn up crisp fresh and zingy or if itll be slimy, rotten smelling and limp. More often the latter.
Withered and expired
Not good! Came withered and expired. Couldn’t use it!
smells and looks awful
Ordered this to use one day after delivery and it absolutely stank, the bag had lots of green slimy leaves so we had to bin it.
Hit and miss
Sometimes it lasts for days, sometimes it turns up all mushed up and slimey.
