|To me...this is the loveliest sight of all not to mention |
the wonderful aroma fresh from the garden! The green and red of the rhubarb,
the red and pink of strawberries, the white glistening sugar and of course
my latest find...Vietnamese Cinnamon (a.k.a. Saigon Cinnamon). This
cinnamon is grown in North Vietnam. It is sweeter and more potent than the
Indonesian Cinnamon more commonly sold in supermarkets.
