As the weather starts to turn warmer you might forget the sweet appeal of cinnamon. It often gets put away as the apple cider turns to peach coolers. Consider how cinnamon aids your absorption of nutrients, and is quite good in savory as well as sweet dishes. If that isn't enough reason to keep playing with this sweet spice, remember that it is good for vitality, gets rid of intestinal gas, eases menstrual cramps, flu, arthritis, candidiasis, congestion and even relieves tension.
I find it gives dishes a nice exotic flavor and pairs well with tamari and sweet vegetables like carrots, onions and winter squash.
