    Fresh Coriander/Cilantro

    I've been using more and more parts of the fresh coriander plant after watching (don't shoot me just yet please) TV cooking shows. I never used to use the roots at all.

    Cilantro/Coriander - Stems, Leaves, or Both?

    Fresh Cilantro comes in bundles of picked stems with leaves. When I taste the stems, they are more spicy than the leaves. Has anybody else bothered to note this? When you use fresh Cilantro, do you discard the stems and only use the leaves?
