Never Run Out Of Cilantro Again Dehydrate It!  I have a friend, Kathleen that will call or text me and ask “do you have any Cilantro”? Sometimes I do and sometimes I do not…..well I have changed that forever! I will never run out of Cilantro again because I will dehydrate more once I get down to my last jar….love it! It smells so wonderful in those pint jars….I have so many recipes that call for Cilantro….let me know if you try dehydrating some. I would love to hear!

Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 pint approx.
Ingredients
  • 1-6 Bunches Cilantro-wash and pat dry (Any amount will work if it fits into your dehydrator)
Instructions
  1. I set my Excalibur Dehydrator at 115 degrees and it took about two hours. I turned off the dehydrator and left the dehydrated Cilantro to rest on the racks overnight because I wanted to make sure it was very dry before I stored it. I placed the Cilantro in pint size jars and used my FoodSaver to remove any air to prolong its storage life. Remember, check out your dehydrator book for temperature. The drying time will always vary depending on the humidity in the area where you are drying it.

Tips from readers:

Karen: I have been growing, dehydrating, then freezing cilantro for a few years now. I don’t think it loses much scent or flavor. I use it in salads, salsa, soup and on whatever meats I choose.

    Do you find that it has lost any flavor at all? Do you use it only as a dried herb or do you try to rehydrate it?

      I just stir the Cilantro into my salad dressings. I sprinkle it on tacos and soups. I LOVE it!

    I dried some Cilantro recently. I thought it lost a lot of it’s flavor. I still use it but with this spice fresh is better.

      I think most everything loses some of its flavor by dehydrating but I have been pleased with the Cilantro. I went to the store and asked the produce manager guy to bring me the freshest Cilantro he had. I wanted ONLY fresh Cilantro. I sprinkle it on salads and use it in the salad dressings I make.

    Linda,
    I found that my drying time and temp for Cilantro was aprox the same. I also use an Excalibur.
    It’s awesome to have Cilantro, in the winter, when the price is really high at the store.

      Hi Sandra, I love having Cilantro when the price is up as well in the winter. I grow it and replant it all summer. I really like the Excalibur brand for a dehydrator. Thanks for stopping by, Linda
