Cinnamon Myrtle

Dried and ground ready for your cooking and baking. This incredible leaf packs a punch and really can just substitute your normal cinnamon. 

Cinnamon myrtle (backhousia myrtifolia) this lovely rainforest tree has cream flowers and cinnamon-scented leaves. While you will probably buy it in dried leaf form, all you need to do is grind it in spice grinder and keep it in an airtight jar. use it in the place of traditional cinnamon wherever you can, through use a little less as it's much stronger in flavour.  

Seasonality: all year dried 
Comparison:  Cinnamon
