Keep one hand on the stalk and the other make a sharp knife close to each other longitudinal sections, retreating slightly from the stalk and cutting through to the end. Lightly press cuts the fingers so that they opened in the form of a fan.

Suit whether syrup other spices?
Take the choice - cinnamon stick (broke in half), b boxes cardamom or a pair cloves inflorescences. Also, instead of whole spices, you can add a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, ginger and a pinch of ground nutmeg, but note that in this case the syrup will dull and lose a little luster.
