Cinnamon – Cinnamomum cassia and verum

Spice of the Month – Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a warming, stimulating spice for the transition from winter to spring. Along with its great taste and scent, it has many therapeutic qualities.
The cinnamon spice comes from the bark of the cinnamon shrub. Cinnamon has been used to improve digestion, help to balance blood sugar levels, and lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Cinnamon is excellent in baked goods, puddings, teas, and coffee. I like to add a pinch to my chilis, smoothies, hot chocolate, sweet potatoes, and baked winter squash. Use this lovely spice to add warmth, energy, and digestive and heart health.

*Cinnamon should not be used in large quantities by pregnant women due to its stimulating effects. Also, avoid overusing if you are on blood thinners.
