Cinnamon sticks

I did not know that there where different types of cinnamon. It is almost impossible to buy caylon cinnamon i norway. I have found one place that have ceylon but it is only 2-3 tbsp and I love cinnamon so I use a lot..

Does anyone know how I can ground cinnamon? Because I have found ceylon cinnamon sticks. Should it be roasted first and then in the food prosessor or what?

Cinnamon sticks are curled shavings of bark from a tree. In order to turn them into powdered cinnamon... now you're talking about wood working tools, such as sanders!

And NO, I wouldn't use a sander.

Whole Foods sells cinnamon in a grinder. Around $4.

I doubt Norway has Whole Foods MW.

I would chop the sticks up as small as I could with a knife or use a mortar and pestle, then grind it into a fine powder using a coffee grinder.

Oh .... IIRC, they are celebrating th eir 30th or 40th birthday; maybe they will expand. Being that as it may, I'd go with GB's advice and if you do a lot of it, their grinder will be redundant anyway.

Here you go. Penzyz has some of the best spices around and their prices are great.

I grind cinnamon sticks in a mortar and pestle in very small quantities. There is so much difference in the taste that it is worth it. Same with cloves
