Uses for Ground and Stick Cinnamon


Add 1.25 tsp. to prepared oatmeal, yogurt or French toast batter.

Use for baking apples, add to your favorite curry recipe, sprinkle over ground coffee before brewing, top-off a latte or hot cocoa, use generously in puddings, especially in bread pudding.

Use whole cinnamon sticks and brew for a delicious, healthy hot tea.
