Cinnamon powder is an unusually addition to tomato sauces, but it adds a surprisingly pleasant and complex flavor to these sauces. Cinnamon is a common ingredient added to Mexican tomato sauces, ground cinnamon's sweetness creates a surprising balance to the tomatoes acidity while adding to the complexity of flavors in the sauce.

Ground cinnamon is also a classic flavor complement to chocolate, used first by the Aztec Indians and continues being used today in Hispanic cuisine. A little pinch of ground cinnamon and cayenne helps bring out the complex flavors of chocolate, which is why they are all ingredients in Mexico's famous Mole sauce.

Ground Cinnamon Cooking Hints

 

Ground cinnamon is important in many sweet desserts as well as savory ones. Add ground cinnamon to pastries, coffee cake, candies, puddings, hot cereals, fruits, sweet sauces and even liqueurs. Add it to savory foods such as tomatoes sauce, Mexican mole sauce. Cinnamon is also used to add aroma or flavor to other products such as candles, soap, mouthwash and toothpaste.

Cinnamon is unusual among spices because freshly ground cinnamon is not always the best choice. Most spices are always better freshly ground because spices start losing volatile oils and thus flavor as soon as they are ground, the longer they sit after grinding the more flavor and aroma are lost. Although this also holds true for ground cinnamon, producers often grind the best cinnamon bark for sale as ground cinnamon and the lower quality cinnamon bark is rolled, dried, and sold as cinnamon sticks. The lower quality of bark used to make most cinnamon stick far out ways the loss of volatile oil that can occur when cinnamon is pre ground.
