The first time I had cilantro was in a homemade salsa. I'm always a little leary of 'homemade canned goods', so I tasted in with a little trepidation. First tortilla scoop, ok- tasted untainted. With the second scoop I gagged! It was like chewing aluminum foil!! I found a napkin and ejected the mouthful into it. Ever since then, I keenly look for those little green leaves that seem to be in everything.
