Day Four: Coriander

filed under: Silver written by: Alfonso

My grandmother used to say that coriander was poisonous if it was eaten in big quantities. I still remember her saying loud in the kitchen, don’t put too much!!! it is dangerous… Some in the village said it was abortive and others that was used to clean the stomach of animals when intoxication… La seƱora Lola used to run upstairs and get the herbs from the attic, they were drying upside down as mummies covered in fabric by families and uses… And now I find myself eating the amount of coriander they used to give to purge the stomachs of cows
