When I was out shopping for ingredients for my home-made muesli the other day, I came across these giant cinnamon sticks. After a little bit of Wiki-research, I realise that they are quite possibly Cassia Sticks - related to Cinnamon, but tougher and less crumblier and maybe more poisonous in large quantities?!Whatever they are - I bought them for their looks - and they are beautifully gracing my side board in criss-cross stack!
When I am tired of them, I think I will try this!
That looks so earthy! I only discovered cassia a few years ago, and assumed it is another name for cinnamon.
I bought these sticks for Christmas, thinking that they were cinammon sticks... I also think they make great decoration. What I did : I put them in bunches and tied them with ribbons, added pine cones and small natural soap bars in a clay bowl with grass border which is handmade in Swaziland!
Ohh I bet they smell good too!
Love the tip about the natural fragrance for your home. Lovely wintery scent.
