Cinnamon is a much more versatile spice than you might think. Sure, it lends a warm, sweet aroma and sunny character to everything from morning toast and cinnamon rolls to spiced cookies. But this earthy, mahogany-colored spice also has a savory side. Middle Eastern lamb and chicken dishes wouldn’t be the same without its irresistible richness and heat. One of the world’s oldest spices, cinnamon is also one of the most popular—and for good reason! Sprinkle it on your morning cappuccino or use it to spice up your favorite chili recipes. We think your nose is the best guide to determining whether a bottle of cinnamon is fresh. It should smell warm, rich and sweet, like a cinnamon cookie just out of the oven.

Excellent. I use cinnamon daily.... from oatmeal to sautéed apples. It is my single favorite spice.

The casia variety is what was used in earlier studies of cinnamon's effect upon blood sugar levels. This was effective, while the verum or so called "true" cinnamon had little to no effect...

While some folks don't like this & claim it's not "true," the fact of the matter it's got the same characteristics of "true" varieties. McCormick offers another variety; Saigon & roasted Saigon cinnamon, found in the glass jars. While I enjoy different varieties, the classic McCormick Ground Cinnamon is economical, quite tasty (esp. to children as it's mild)& due to it's popularity, you can be assured that it will be relatively fresh when buying it. I wish McCormick would consider carrying Korintje &/or Vietnamese cinnamon as they are delightful. They have more "warmth" & flavor.

I always used this on my cinnamon toast and loved it!

If this is 100% cinnamon, why then does it thicken like mucus when heated. I love the flavor but it turns my stomach when added to hot liquids. I've also researched cinnamon and can't imagine they would sell something that supposedly causes health problems. Is it true? I am very health conscious and too many companies don't care about your health only their pockets. McCormicks cinnamon is very flavorful, but is it safe.

Cassian – This one has a high amount of Coumarin which could possibly cause liver problems if taken in large doses. Ceylon – If you are going to be using it for medicinal purposes make sure you use the one called Ceylon.

This type of cinnamon is not good to consume on a regular basis considering it's has the ability to coagulate blood. There's a second type of cinnamon that is really what you should be selling.
