This wouldn't be a Latino product known as recaito or culantro, would  
it? If so, it's a sort of sofrito-type mixture, containing stuff like  
onion and garlic in addition to recau, which is a close relative of  
what most Americans know as cilantro, but a slightly different plant.  
The flavor is similar, though. If you're just trying to get the  
general effect, no problem, but I can envision some SCA circumstances  
where it might be cause for concern or question.
