Let us learn about cinnamon. Cinnamon is being more recognized for his health values. Cinnamon dates back thousands of years. It was used long ago for its medicinal properties. It is a spice. There are two types of cinnamon, Ceylon, and Cassia. The cinnamon we are familiar with and use is the Cassia cinnamon. The Ceylon cinnamon is a 'true' cinnamon. Do you know where cinnamon comes from? It comes from the stems of the cinnamomum tree. The cinnamon tree is commercially grown in Brazil, the Caribbean, and India. Cassia cinnamon is grown in Indonesia, Vietnam, China and Burma.
It takes two years before the tree is cut back to the size of a stump and covered with soil. This causes the tree now to grow like a bush. Shoots emerge from the stump. It is these shoots that make cinnamon. The shoots are stripped of their bark and the peels set in the sun to dry. When this happens the bark curls into a quill, which are the cinnamon sticks we are familiar with. The quills are cut into the stick length, packaged and distributed to the market.
Ceylong cinnamon smells sweet and is a light brown color. It is easy to grind.Cassia cinnamon is not usually found in the home and is harder to grind. Not only is cinnamon used for baking, it is also an essential oil.Now its time to get busy and baking. Please visit the Six Sisters Stuff website to get the full recipe ingredients and instructions.
