  5. Add the peppers and almonds and heat through.

Note: Coriander has a long and esteemed history in cooking. It has been recorded that coriander was one of the herbs grown in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Other writings list it as a medicinal in ancient Thebes. Coriander smells similar to tangy orange peel. The ancient Romans used coriander to add flavor to breads, cakes, meats, and fish.
Coriander is an annual which is slow to germinate. If planting coriander you may do so in either spring or fall. The soil should be dry and light, planting the coriander 5" apart.
