These amazing cinnamon sticks from Sri Lanka may be delicate to the touch, but they pack an amazing flavor. Sweeter and more nuanced than their cassia cinnamon cousins, Ceylon cinnamon sticks are perfect for baking. The natural brittleness of true cinnamon makes for easy grinding into any dish.
The most important feature to look for when seeking out true Ceylon cinnamon are the thin, cigar-like rolled layers which are achieved during the drying process.
With the smell of spicy goodness simmering over the stove, the European tradition of mulled wine & cider ushers in the holidays with the warm, reassuring tastes of fruit, spice & sweetness in one amazing drink.
