  • Considering how the quest for exotic spice fueled exploration around the world in the 15th century, it is no wonder that our favorite holiday flavors herald from around the world. From Southwest India to Southeast Asia, we find cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and mace.
    True cinnamon comes from the bark of Cinnamomum zeylanicum, an evergreen tree native to Southwest India.  This is the premium spice that is harvested just as new growth emerges from 2-year-old stems. It has a light brown color and the interior of the quills (the curled strips) consist of several layers.

  • Picking out the perfect Christmas tree is serious business for me.
    Some may find it a trivial chore, but I want a tree that will be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, step ladders and more. But, once the mundane is done then the fun begins.
