General Description

Cinnamon is the dried bark of various laurel trees in the cinnamomun family. It grows in the seychelles. One of the more common trees from which Cinnamon is derived is the cassia. Ground cinnamon is perhaps the most common baking spice. Cinnamon sticks are made from long pieces of bark that are rolled, pressed, and dried. Lots of curry recipes use cinnamon sticks .Curry octopus (I promise it is delicious) contain the leaves from cinnamon and it lends a beautifully light whisper of cinnamon. recipe to follow
