Beyond the warm, earthy taste it imparts, we love cinnamon because it loves us back!
Did you know?
Cinnamon’s super power comes from its highly potent amounts of polyphenol antioxidants which may help protect your cells from the oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Cinnamon is also regarded as an anti-inflammatory spice, which may support overall health and wellness!
A little sweet, a little savory
From spiced cider and cakes, to exotic curries and stews, cinnamon might be the secret note that awakens the palette. A couple tips to consider …
- Balancing your cinnamon can be a tasting trial. If your cinnamon flavor leans towards the sweet, adding spices like chile or paprika will help to pull it down. If your cinnamon flavor is a bit hotter, cool it down with subtle amounts of sugar or nutmeg.
- Water can be a powerful diluter, so when trying to counter cinnamon’s flavor, a vegetable stock can impart nutrition and taste without dulling your entire dish.
