Farmers Market | Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a great fall and winter spice. It is a flavoured stick with a strong scent which actually comes from the outer bark of a cinnamomum tree. In addition to being a wonderful spice iced in a variety of recipes, cinnamon also has anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. From helping to prevent stoke and artery disease to increasing digestion , the health benefits of cinnamon are numerous. It also can reduce blood sugar levels and cure the common cold. 

Cinnamon is available year round in sticks and powder forms. It's sweet and fragrant and is a light brown colour. It is used in pies, bagels and candies.
