So just in case you haven't tried it, here it is:
- I use a glass spice jar and add about 2 tsp of ground cinnamon, then fill the rest of the jar with sugar. Give it a shake to mix.
This also makes a nice gift idea.
For a bigger batch:
- 2 cups of granulated sugar
- add 1 1/2 Tablespoons of ground cinnamon and a couple cinnamon sticks to a jar that seals tightly.
- Cut a vanilla bean in half and scrape the seeds from the bean into the sugar, then bury the bean in the sugar. This works well in desserts and drinks. It takes about a week to infuse the vanilla flavor into the sugar.
