Fruit Trees

Cinnamon Tree

 The Cinnamon Tree is highly ornamental tree and the source of cinnamon spice. The beautiful red new growth is highly distinctive. The spice itself is the inner bark that is peeled from the branches after 2 years. Scrape the outer bark, then peel the inner bark, then leave for a day so that the inner bark curls into cinnamon sticks as it dries. They are distinctive in the many layered quills they produce that, when crushed, will shard rather than snap.

Cinnamon is a very elegant and useful aromatic - much kinder to the palate than other spices. It imparts a distinctively sweet flavour when used. The leaves themselves are higher in clove oil than cinnamaldehyde, the active component of the sweet aromatic scent of cinnamon #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #cinnamontree #cinnamon
