One of the food brands I’m most loyal to is McCormick. McCormick spices are sheer perfection – and why in the world would you want to mess with perfection? Seriously, if all of the other spices and seasonings disappeared, you’d never miss them. McCormick has everything you could ever hope for and the quality is more than you could ever hope for.
I’ve recently tried five new McCormick Gourmet Spices that have rocked my culinary world and I look forward to sharing them with you.
I was going to do one massive post, but I was afraid one of these special spices would get lost in the mix or overshadowed by paprika (you know how flashy she is). So, as it is, I’m going to take a different McCormick Gourmet Spice each day and tell you why I love it and why you need it.
First up is one I used (for like the gazillion-th time) this morning: Roasted Saigon Cinnamon.
In addition to drinking coffee and petting my cats, I love few things in the morning as much as I love oatmeal . Wholesome, delicious, nutritious – what better way to start the day? Roasted Saigon Cinnamon is a brilliantly tasty addition to oatmeal. Not only does it taste sensational, there’s a hidden benefit: When you use an extraordinary spice like this one, you’ll be able to use less sugar and less butter.
You’ll make your heart and waistline so happy they’ll want to kiss your cinnamon-y mouth.
I’ve also found that Cinnamon Toast is a whole new ballgame with Roasted Saigon Cinnamon. It’s bolder and better than ever before.
Other uses for Roasted Saigon Cinnamon include:
- Cut a grapefruit in half and “section.” Sprinkle with Roasted Saigon Cinnamon and place on a baking sheet (sprinkled side up). Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Yum!
- Cinnamon Rolls and Coffee Cakes
- Sprinkle on top of French Toast
- Spread cream cheese on a toasted bagel or English muffin. Sprinkle with Roasted Saigon Cinanmon.
- Stir into your pancake or waffle batter for a pleasant surprise.
- Sprinkle on sliced apples, pears, or peaches.
- Make a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
- Use in your favorite apple pie recipe.
- Use in peach cobbler recipes.
- Scoop yogurt into a bowl. Top with apple slices, granola, and cinnamon.
- Top frozen yogurt or ice cream with cinnamon and warm peaches (is your mouth watering yet?)
