- PRODUCTION: cinnamon, a tree is grown for about 2 years.
- FLAVOR: With a deep color, strong flavor and a sharp, bitter edge that goes well with coffee.
- USE: The most common way cinnamon is used as Cinnamon powder for baking pastries, sprinkled on coffee or tea and just mixed with honey and eaten direct. The quills and chips are used for making chai tea blends, pickling spice blends, or in mixology. Also put in a simmering pot of cider or wine to mull.
- STORAGE: Cinnamon should be kept in a tightly sealed glass container in a cool, dark and dry place. Ground cinnamon will keep for about six months. Alternatively, you can extend their shelf life by storing them in the refrigerator. To check to see if it is still fresh, smell the cinnamon. If it does not smell sweet, it is no longer fresh and should be discarded.
