Ceylon “true” cinnamon, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, has a subtly complex flavor that doesn’t come across in the spicier and stronger cassia, with a delicately floral citrus aroma. The quills of whole Ceylon cinnamon are very delicate and feel similar to parchment paper, and can be broken apart with your fingertips.Ceylon Cinnamon. 50g pack
Cinnamon quills are 12.5cm lengths of tightly rolled, concentric layers of the very thin underneath layer of bark.Cinnamon quills have an aromatic fragrance and can be put into stewed compotes of fruit, used to flavour gluwein, and curries. A centimetre broken up and put into a coffee plunger with the grounds gives it a delicately spiced flavour.
