Ah Cinnamon, what a wonderful spice, taken from the dried bark of the tree of the Laurel family. Originally from Sri Lanka, it is now grown in India, Indonesia, the west indies and Indian Ocean islands. it comes in four forms, quills, quillings, ground and essential oils.
Such a wonderful spice, it can be added to both sweet and savoury dishes (see later). It comes in five forms, quills, quillings, buds, ground and essential oils. Don't get this confused with the bark of the Cassia, which although is part of the laurel family is usually called Chinese Cinnamon. Cassia is interchangeable with cinnamon in many countries including USA, so some of the products for sale on this site might be made of Cassia, but there is no way of knowing, maybe we should have a site EverythingCassia, but I don't think we'll bother.
Cinnamon 'HOT' News for Jun 2007
Contary to popular belief, we have not packed up shop and moved over to the land of milk and honey or even Cinnamon. In fact we are working hard on the EverythingCinnamon Cookbook, compiling Cinnamon recipes from around the world and putting them into one giant tome. Sorry to say we only have Don's Vodka recipe that we can credit, so if you want to get your name in print (assuming we can find a publisher!) then send in some recipes an become famous. Send you email recipes to us for inclusion.
As it stands we now have recipes for 17 breads, 14 buns, 25 cakes, 20 muffins, 24 cookies, 21 alcoholic drinks, 25 mulled wines, 80 cinnamon schnapps, 27 aftershock, only 3 non-alcoholic drinks (seems that cinnamon lovers like the odd drop eh?), 2 Salad recipes (and not so very healthy either), 3 toast & Savories, 11 coffees, 3 ice-creams, 3 desserts, 12 meat dishes, 24 machine breads, 24 sauces and jams, 9 potpourri and 10 misc.( for a total of 514) I have just noticed we don't have any cinnamon Teas, so there is an opening for you cinnamonphiles out there!!!
