Mr. and Mrs. Smith,
I am writing you to inform you that cinnamon sticks are not actually in the order we received at the restaurant last night. Please be more careful in future orders. Thank you for your time and understanding.
We are your cinnamon stick suppliers. We supply cinnamon sticks to customers all over the world. Our cinnamon sticks are supplied in a variety of sizes, from 5cm up to 45cm, and arrive either whole or cut in half. Our cinnamon sticks come in two varieties: cassia and ceylon.
We can also supply cinnamon quills, if required. Our quills are made by rolling up whole cinnamon bark into tubes, which can be as small as 3mm diameter or as large as 10cm diameter. The quills come in three varieties: cassia, ceylon and saigon.
Making your own cinnamon sticks is easy. All you need are some long, thin strips of cinnamon bark, and a way to tie them together (string, wire, or dental floss). You can buy loose quills of cinnamon bark at many natural food stores (just make sure they’re true cinnamon – not cassia) or at an ethnic grocery store. They might be a little expensive on the grocery store shelf, but buying them directly from a spice merchant will save you a lot of money.
1. Take one long strip of bark and roll it into a tight spiral.
2. Tie it into a knot with the string (as shown in the photo).
3. Continue rolling and knotting until you’ve used up all your strips.
4. If you’re using string and want to get rid of the knots, simply dip the knotted sticks in hot water for about thirty seconds to loosen the glue, then pull out the string and allow the sticks to dry thoroughly before storing them in an airtight container.
It is the time of year for cinnamon sticks in your coffee and pumpkin spice lattes. It is also the time of year for people to wonder if there is actually any cinnamon in those lattes.
If you have ever given your dog a stick of cinnamon, you know that they are not edible. The bark is just too hard. The question is whether those cinnamon sticks are actually made from the same plant or whether they are just plastic props to make your latte Instagrammable.
The short answer: Yes, real cinnamon sticks are made from real cinnamon plants. But the longer answer is much more complicated and involves international trade, government regulations, and giant corporations.
The Cinnamon Plant
Cinnamon comes from a tree native to Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) in South Asia. It belongs to the laurel family that also includes bay leaves and camphor trees. There are two kinds of spice sold as cinnamon: Cassia (Cinnamomum cassia) and true cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum).
Cassia has been used as a spice since ancient times and was imported into Egypt as early as 2000 BC and referred to in the Bible in Exodus 30:23 where Moses is instructed by God to use both sweet cinnamon (Kinnamon)
