Use
As a spice it has been known since the dawn of history. It is used to flavour soups, stews, curries, salads etc. in many countries and in the Hadramaut in S Arabia to flavour bread. According to Schischkin (1950) the young stems are sometimes used as a spice in Georgia while the dried stems provide fuel. He goes on to state that the fruit contains up to 1% of essential coriander oil, of which the main component is coriandrol, and that this is obtained by soaking the fruit in water for about 14 hours and then by distillation. This oil is used in the manufacture of perfumes, soap and liqueurs, and also added to improve the taste of medicines as a substitute for other aromatic substances; the fruit is also sometimes employed as a flavourant and spice in pastries and even in canned meats. Moreover the fruit also contains about 15% of a fatty oil, which can be extracted from the residue left after separation of the essential oil by distillation, while the residual cake, containing some 12% of protein, is fed to cattle. Wren (1956) describes the medicinal properties of the fruit as stimulant and carminative.
