The CinnPot!!! Its my latest obsession — fill a pot with water, put it on the burner, & sprinkle in cinnamon. When it starts to simmer, the smell of cinnamon permeates the kitchen and its wonderful! I’ve also thrown in a cinnamon stick, and sprinkled in ginger & pumpkin pie spice (basically what I had lying around). I’m dying to try it with citrus peels as well — its like a live batch of potpourri.
TIPS: Add a lot of water to the pot because as it simmers, the water dissipates and will eventually disappear. Leave it on for too long and you might start smelling scorched cinnamon. To avoid this from happening I also like to keep the heat on below medium.
