Yesterday the Ceylon cinnamon arrived. Vince had ordered a one pound bag of the ground cinnamon and one bottle of the cinnamon capsules.
A lot of the spices that I use a lot, I buy in bulk, either 8 oz. bags of 16 oz. bags. The prices are so much more economical to buy that way. For the Ceylon cinnamon, I filled two shaker spice jars. If you don’t already have empty jars, either from saving jars as they’re empty or ordering, I’ve ordered these from Amazon in the past. They’re a little more than $2 each if you order 24 and a little less than $2 each if you order 36. They’re nice jars and can be used over and over. When our garlic and onions are harvested, I will dry some of both, run it through the blender and make onion and garlic powder for the year.
We order all our bulk herbs and spices from Frontier and have been quite happy with them.
The Ceylon cinnamon has a milder flavor. Vince said it isn’t as robust as the Vietnamese cinnamon and reminds him of nutmeg. We’re definitely giving up some of the cinnamon taste we’re used to but for the health benefits, we just fine with it.
This morning we had oatmeal and used the Ceylon cinnamon, along with blueberries and yogurt. Works for me.
