Using Cinnamon Sticks in Your Recipes at Your Gainesville, FL, Apartment

Cinnamon is a wonderful spice that can add a delicious kick to certain recipes. It is found in the inner bark of certain evergreen trees. The bark is peeled off the tree and laid out in the sun to dry; in the process, it curls into sticks. Cinnamon sticks are usually preferred over ground cinnamon because they keep for a longer period of time (two years versus six months).

Cinnamon sticks are typically added to a dish while it is cooking and removed at the end, infusing the food with flavor. Here are some ways to use them:

    • Placing them into a slow cooker when cooking a meat recipe
    • Tossing them into a grain dish, like rice or couscous, while it’s cooking
    • Steeping them in hot water to make cinnamon tea
    • Using them as a stirrer for warm beverages, such as hot cocoa, tea, coffee, and cider
    • Adding them to oatmeal while preparing
    • Placing them on top of ground coffee before it is brewed

Cinnamon gives off a sweet and spicy flavor that can completely transform some of your favorite dishes. Enjoy the sudden burst of taste in your bowl of oatmeal, cup of coffee, or meat dish.

“The scenery and space is amazing. The apartment leasing staff and maintenance staff are wonderful. I love that its a gated community and all though it's family and student oriented it's still extremely quiet.”
“This is a quiet gated community with nice apartments located in a great area.”
“We just moved in about a month ago. We had maintenance in so many times trying to get things set up for my disabled son - but they never complained. The grounds are beautiful. The people in the office are always polite and helpful. Very happy here.”
