Cinnamon Quills Sri Lankan Strong Fragrance 500g
Cinnamon is harvested by growing the tree for two years and then coppicing it. The next year a dozen or so shoots will form from the roots. These shoots are then stripped of their bark and left to dry. Only the thin (0.5 mm) inner bark is used; the outer woody portion is removed, leaving metre long cinnamon strips which curl into rolls (“quills”) on drying; each dried quill comprises strips from numerous shoots packed together.
