While cinnamon chips have value in the kitchen, these chips are a boon to organic gardeners. Many pests that bother plants and people seem to dislike cinnamaldehyde, the chemical in the bark responsible for the strong flavor and aroma of the spice. To help keep your landscape pest-free, consider adding organic cinnamon chips to your mulch.
The small pieces are also convenient to handle when mixing spice blends for making mulled wines or pickled foods. Similarly, cinnamon chips can easily be added to tea blends without the need to grind the bark into a powder.
