Heh.  I grew cinnamon basil last year and it has reseeded all over the 
place *this* year! Seeds of Change says that it is a "tea basil" -- I made 
straight tea with it last year and found it quite refreshing on hot 
days.  This year, I found a recipe for equal parts spearmint and cinnamon 
basil, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

SOC also says that it is used in Mexican cooking.  I haven't a clue where, 
but I supposed one could try it.

Whoever said they had cinnamon basil recipes should post them to the list 
-- I think we can all use them!
