Cinnamon Sticks

The Cinnamon [Cassia]sticks on my mantelpiece came from the stack I told you about before. This weekend I decided to take some of those sticks and do what I had said I would. I boiled them on the stove. The water became a beautiful rich cinnamon colour and the house smelt absolutely amazing! I thought it would impress the family when they arrived home, but they were disappointed that the cinnamon buns they imagined were baking in the oven, were not there after all!

Did you really post this at 1:30something? Shew. My sytem only refreshed now to show it.
Beautiful! Cinnamon buns reminds me of the high school tuck shop - although I doubt there was much more than sugar and raisins in those buns.

Cinnamon is one of my favourite smells and flavours so this sounds great to me! What are you planning to do with the cinnamon essence you've extracted?
