Whole cinnamon sticks don't seem to get as much use in the kitchen as ground cinnamon, since many people can't be bothered with grating a fresh stick if they only need a little spice.
But sticks are so easy to incorporate into your everyday cooking, you'll wonder why you didn't start using them sooner.
Try adding Cool Runnings Cinnamon Sticks to the simmer pot next time while making chicken broth or add some sticks to your tea infuser before you begin brewing or simmer a cinnamon stick with your coffee, tea, cider,cocktails or oatmeal.
Whether you're making beef, chicken, pork, or lamb, a touch of cinnamon intensifies the savory aroma and adds a subtle richness to the meat. It won't taste like cinnamon, but it'll add a layer of flavor to the dish that will have your guests wondering what your secret ingredient is.
