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.
