How do you grind up cinnamon sticks?
Also to know is, how do you make cinnamon sticks into powder?
This can be prepared by roasting whole cinnamon and then crushing it into a fine powder. While grinding add 1 tbsp of brown sugar (for one cup cinnamon sticks). Dry roast cinnamon in a pan for 2 minutes on low flame. Switch off the flame and transfer roasted cinnamon to a big plate.
- Line up cinnamon sticks on a cutting board with the flatter, curled-in side down so they do not roll.
- Mark across all of the cinnamon sticks at the desired length with a pencil, then set the sticks aside.
- Cut the cinnamon stick across the scored mark using floral shears, then clip any stray edges.
Beside this, is ground cinnamon the same as cinnamon sticks?
Start by replacing each 2-inch cinnamon stick that your recipe calls for with 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. After mixing in the ground cinnamon, taste your dish to see whether you want a more pronounced cinnamon flavor. Ground cinnamon has a stronger flavor than cinnamon sticks, so don't add too much at once.
If you find yourself with cinnamon sticks when you need ground cinnamon, you can grind the stick and salvage your recipe. Place your cinnamon sticks into a manual or automatic coffee grinder. Remove the cinnamon powder from your grinder by pouring it into a small bowl, then insert the next batch of sticks to be ground.
