Thank you
to all who responded to my cinnamon question. The practical upshot, is that I
obtained a quantity of cinnamon from a local Asian market, and before I knew
it, my 17-year-old daughter had made a very good bread pudding!

Happy
days,

Christopher

And in one of those odd coincidences, my wife was reading through some
information for a co-worker a couple of days ago and came across some
references to cinnamon being used as a wound dressing for people as well as
plants.

Apparently it's been used this way for a long time - a very quick online search
turned up a number of hits, some references from herbal medicine, some research
on the antimicrobial/antifungal properties of compounds found in cinnamon.
