Cilantro is especially delicious with seafood and poultry. In addition to ethnic recipes that call for cilantro, you might try it in dips, sour cream (to serve with enchiladas or tacos, for example), stir fries, salads, and meat dishes. It partners well with chili peppers. Organic cilantro gives you the best flavor and the best health benefits cilantro has to offer. Cilantro is more than just tasty, it's also antimicrobial. The essential oils in cilantro extract are especially effective against Listeria bacteria, and also slow the growth of E. coli and Salmonella.

In Victorian England, turkeys were popular for Christmas dinners. Some of the birds were raised in Norfolk, and taken to market in London. To get them to London, the turkeys were supplied with boots made of sacking or leather. The turkeys were walked to market. The boots protected their feet from the frozen mud of the road. Boots were not used for geese: instead, their feet were protected with a covering of tar.
