When to use Cinnamon Quills?

jkhdsf | Dec 14, 2010 08:11 AM

I'm new to using cinnamon quills and curious when and why to use them over ground cinnamon.

I understand that over time, ground cinnamon can loose its punch but provided it's still got some life left in it, in what situations would a cinnamon quill be favoured over ground cinnamon?

I've been trying it in my oatmeal with not a lot of success. The taste just doesn't really seem to diffuse in the 15 minutes or so it takes for a pot of grains.
