Dear cinnamon

Cinnamon... You either love or hate it! I happen to be part of the first group and I love to sprinkle it on pretty much everything! I add it to a cake, stir it in my hot cocoa and even dare to mix it in my curry.

I particularly like cinnamon sugar. It’s not always easy to find in your local supermarket (especially when you live in dubai) but you can easily make it yourself. On top of that, if you do decide to make your own you can make it organic for the health conscious ones... And of course it makes a great homemade present for your fellow cinnamon lovers!

So what can you use the cinnamon sugar for? I love to put mine on some buttered toast but you can also put it inside your hot chocolate or even in your coffee. It’s also a very nice baking ingredient...

What you need is:

                    450ml jam jars
                    superfine organic sugar
                    organic cinnamon powder
                    organic cinnamon sticks

Fill you jars with the superfine sugar until approximately 2 cm from the top. Now add one heaped teaspoon of cinnamon to the sugar, close the jar and give it a good mix. If you want to give it as a present you can decorate the jars with jam jar covers and finally use up all those scraps of fabrics that have been hanging around forever!
