Cinnnamon 101

Here’s a little about the delicious ingredient and five recipes to inspire your baking…

Cinnamon is a sweet and aromatic spice that works just as well in sweet bakes and desserts as it does in savoury dishes.

You can find it in powder form or as whole sticks, but the ground spice will lose its flavour after a few months.

It’s best to buy it in small quantities and store it in an airtight container in a dark place to keep it at its best.

Whole cinnamon varies in size, but the thinner, more fragile sticks are better quality than the chunkier, more robust sticks.

Whole sticks will last for up to a year!
