Culinary Notes :
Cinnamon Sticks are a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used in both sweet and savoury foods to impart a warm spice flavour. In the Middle East it is commonly paired with meats such as chicken and lamb. The term ‘cinnamon’ also refers to its mid-brown colour.
- Cinnamon sticks are used to infuse flavour into liquid. Steep then remove and discard before serving
Cinnamon has many nutritional benefits due to the essential oils contained in the bark of the tree it is obtained from. It contains calcium and manganese as well as antioxidants. It helps to lower blood sugar and cholesterol as well as maintain heart health.
