Beautiful fabrics, a baby carrier…
And a handful of cinnamon sticks sent to me by a reader who lives in Sudan.
Floored, to say the least.
I’d love to do something really special with this cinnamon…does anyone have a recipe to share?

I love using the cinnamon sticks when I make rice pudding.
rice pudding is a good idea! i’ve never made it.
Hey Jordan – I immediately thought of healing tea! My sister-in-law back in London, Ontario is in treatment for a brain tumour at the moment (good vibes to her and my brother & their two little ones this tough winter) and everything is organic and healing and healthy to help her along. Her mom has been making her this tea all the time & I made it before Christmas and loved it! At the last minute before a party I got the idea (I think channeling you) to pop some in a cute glass bottle I’d bought, write out the recipe on some cute paper, and make it a hostess gift. Not sure if they thought it was weird or not. Anyway, it’s soooo good and good for you. You just need a couple more, easy-to-find ingredients.
1/3 cup sliced peeled fresh ginger, cut 1/4 inch thick
10 cups water
3 tbsp coriander seeds
1 1/2 tbsp cardamom pods
4 cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 to 3 tbsp of maple syrup
1 1/2 cups rice or almond milk
Combine the ginger and water in a pan. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes (cover with a lid)
Add coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves and simmer for another 20 minutes
You can store this part in the fridge for up to 10 days. When you are ready to drink it, do half tea, half milk and heat it up! I also like to sweeten it by the cup because people have different tastes.
This is my idea of a great night.
