Fall is here which means that the sweet smell of cinnamon is starting to surround us! Here are some great cool weather recipes below that use cinnamon and whole cloves that do not have to do with pumpkin pie!

Our Organic cinnamon is from Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, and Vietnam. Cinnamon comes from the inner bark of a tree, which is skillfully sliced off and rolled into thin quills, which are hung dry. Direct from organic family farms. There is a difference between ceylon and cassia cinnamon. Our product is Cassia.

Our Organic Cloves are from India, Indonesia, Madagascar, and Sri Lanka. Cloves come from an evergreen tree which flowers pale buds that turn bright red when ready to harvest.

Whole cloves are added to a medium-low heat pan which releases the natural oils. Add water and sugar until most of the liquid simmers off. Repeat with clementines. Mix syrups with gin, prosecco, and soda and garnish with orange and cloves!
