Cinnamon Sticks, Organic Premium, 2.75"
First of all, what exactly is a cinnamon stick? It is the dried inner bark - the oil rich phloem layer - of the tropical cinnamomum tree. This bark is first cut and peeled from the tree. During the subsequent drying process these pieces curl up to form "sticks." This product is cinnamomum burmanii, a Cassia type variety. Thicker, with a stronger, more spicy flavor than Ceylon type cinnamon. A nice product. A little smaller than the normal stick. Organically grown in Indonesia. Try it freshly grated to garnish a cream based cocktail, or use whole in a toddy or hot buttered rum.
