Amazing Cinnamon Cures

Cinnamon is one of the world’s most ancient spices, and yet still today is one of the most popular characters in the spice rack.

7. Cinnamon coffee is lovely. Just add a quarter or half of a teaspoon of cinnamon to your cup and enjoy. You can also use a cinnamon stick to stir your coffee—and, yes, this stirrer is edible. In fact, some kids like nibbling on a cinnamon stick by itself! And cinnamon is also tasty in hot chocolate.

8. Cinnamon goes well with many fruits. Stew some sliced apples, peaches and/or pears, with cinnamon, a little water and your favorite sweetener. Serve hot or cold. Want a great fast dessert? Slice an apple, cook it in the microwave till soft, and serve with cinnamon and your favorite sweetener.

9. Put cinnamon in a pretty shaker and keep it on the table. Sprinkle liberally on hot or cold cereal, French toast, or pancakes. Just keeping it out in plain view will encourage you to use it more often.

10. Next time you’re wondering how to make baked chicken a little different, reach for the cinnamon. Just add cinnamon along with the spices you usually use. (I like a little salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, rosemary, and some cinnamon.) You can also take cinnamon aromatically, that is, you can diffuse cinnamon oil into the air. It is not clear if there are the same health benefits to sniffing cinnamon as eating it, but it can be very pleasant. Get a good-quality cinnamon essential oil (sometimes you have to get cassia oil, which smells the same but is from a different species of the Cinnamomum tree) and a diffuser. There has been a study which found that inhaling a whiff of cinnamon oil can increase alertness about the same as cup of coffee.
