Gregg's Cinnamon Quills
Cinnamon is from a tropical, evergreen tree of the laurel family, native to Sri Lanka, that grows up to seven metres in its wild state. The outer bark, cork and the pithy inner lining are scraped off and the remaining bark is left to dry completely, so that it curls and rolls into quills.
Cinnamon is a mild, warming, sweet-flavoured spice used in both savoury and sweet dishes, however in Western cooking is most often used in baking and desserts. Whole cinnamon quills keep their flavour for a long time and tend to be used to impart flavour to tagines, stews and curries but are removed before serving.
