Organic Cinnamon Sticks 30cms / 12 inches - Long

View larger Image

These long Organic Cinnamon Quills are 30cms long / 12 inches long - roughly the same length as a standard A4 ruler. The quills are 10mm in diameter and we are selling them in pairs.


The organic cinnamon quills are fantastically delicate paper-thin curled cinnamon bark.  Graded as "Export Fine Quills, C5 (or C-00000)".   It is truly an artform as to how the skilled cinnamon farmers in Sri Lanka dexterously prepare the cinnamon quillings - they start by cutting away the outer bark and then using a brass rod, the cinnamon peelers bruise and loosen the remaining paper-thin layer and then carefully remove a 3 foot portion of moist, fragrant cinnamon bark, which is rolled up tight to dry into the gorgeously flavoured and magical organic cinnamon quills.  There's a good set of pictures at the BBC website on the cinnamon process


Steenbergs Organic Cinnamon Quills have a sweet, perfumed, warm and pleasantly woody spice with no hint of bitterness.  Steenbergs Organic Cinnamon Quills are delicious and fragrant organic and cinnamon quills from Sri Lanka, coming usually from the Small Organic Farmers Association in Kandy, Sri Lanka. These organic cinnamon quills are wonderful in curries, rice, puddings, or even mulled wine.


Organic cinnamon quills have a complex and fragrant citrus flavour that is full of exotic sweetness. Cinnamon's perfumed aroma is unique but has hints of clove, nutmeg and sandalwood. Axel loves adding cinnamon quills to casseroles, finding they work well in beef and lamb stews. For further inspiration, go to Steenbergs Recipes and enter cinnamon for recipe ideas or try the BBC Website (but note that the photo they have is of cassia!).
