Great Ways to Use Cinnamon Sticks
Spice up Your Cooking (and Drinks)
Whereas ground cinnamon can sometimes overwhelm a dish or beverage, cinnamon sticks are generally more subtle. Plus, they make gorgeous garnishes. Just remember to take them out of whatever you're infusing before enjoying.
Decorate with Them
Remember when we said that cinnamon sticks make gorgeous garnishes? You're probably going to want to decorate with them in your home, too. Try these elegant candles, make holiday ornaments or just fill a vase with cinnamon sticks for woodsy table accents.
Make Your Home Smell Amazing
