  1. Cinnamon always reminds me of autumn and childhood. We’d pick apples and the next day(ish) my mother would get to work making pies to freeze which we would then enjoy over the winter. She would always make sure to save a bit of the extra dough for my sister and I. We got to roll it out ourselves and sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar. My Mom would bake it in the oven and when it was done we’d eat it with cups of “fairy tea” (warm milk with a bit of tea and sugar).

  2. How interesting, I never knew that about cinnamon, here’s one for you – when I was on the ferry crossing in scotland, I was just browsing the menu to pass the time and I read the children menu had low salt, they were using seaweed in its place! Maybe in future, they could put seaweed and cinnamon in foods, instead of sugar and salt
