Cinnamon – one of the Organic Herbs and Spices from Crete...

Cinnamon is used not just to flavour desserts and sweet dishes but also is added to Greek meat dishes such as traditional Stifado. The aromatic organic cinnamon sticks known also as quills will add natural flavour to a range of dishes.

In Greek mythology the mystical bird of regeneration, the phoenix was said to build a nest from cinnamon sticks and rise from its burned ashes.

Known to the ancient Greeks as a therapeutic spice and prized for its aroma cinnamon was said to aid the blood, heart and digestive system.

Cinnamon was also popular in ancient Greece as an additive to wine and was said to be sacred to the god of wine Dionysus.
