Cinnamon stick

August 11, 2012  •  Category:


Cinnamon sticks can be long; this one measures 16 inches (about 40 cms). I found it at a spice store in Beirut; it is imported from Ceylon.

Cinnamon in the Lebanese kitchen is mostly used for savory dishes, especially when preparing chicken and rice; it is one of the components of kibbeh meat and used in tandem with allspice.

    That is a long stick! I love cinnamon in savory dishes… it’s hard to make people understand how good it is sometimes…until they try it for the second and third time, which I am finding with my husband to be the case.
