    I'm a wee bit confused about how much coriander/cilantro leaf to use. It calls for 5 bunches, which seems like a lot. Also, I'm not clear on how much "enough" water & vinegar is. Help, please? Thank you.

    They sell fresh coriander with its roots, so that would be 5 roots

    Depending how much dipping you'd like to make and how sour, then you would know the measurement of the water and vinegar.
