You could gently heat the resulting cinnamon flavor extract uncovered until the alcohol evaporates. Slowly heat it up to 78.3'C (172.94'F) and keep it there for a few minutes. Either an immersion or IR thermometer can help with this. Just... (more)

I have taken to gnawing cinnamon sticks in order to break my gum addiction. Can there be a negative side to this? I eat about 2 or 3 a day.

I was surprised to find out that there are different kinds of cinnamon. Sounds like the kind of cinnamon your eating is prolly the one called Cassia- I'd go cold turkey in regards to your gum addiction. Much like quitting smoking it'd be better... (more)

I do not eat cinnamon often, because of the doubt that it can be THAT healthy for me. When i do use it though, it is in a pretty generous amount. It makes sweet potatoes taste all the better, with butter of course. So: Cinnamon, healthy or not? (more)

If my research is correct, the benefits that everyone is listing here apply to Ceylon cinnamon, not the more commonly eaten type in the U.S. which is Saigon cinnamon (and which, technically isn't really cinnamon -- it's a different bark). When I... (more)

As I understand it, the actual problem is that the "taste" of sweet causes insulin to be secreted in anticipation of sugar. So, what you are asking is actually impossible. You want your cocoa to taste sweet without tasting sweet, i.e. you want... (more)
