How do you get the smell of the sauce out of the seal ring stamped on the lid? Even with soaking it in baking soda water I can still smell sauce. I'd hate to put something into one of those jars and have it taste a bit like tomato. Cinnamon Prego anyone? I tend to reuse more neutral smelling jars.

I store my excess spices in the basement. The cinnamon is still in the plastic jar it came in; the last time I filled my small jar in the pantry the stored stuff was still as fresh as when it was bought. I find even my Penzeys stay fresh in the plastic bags their sold in.

Have you tried soaking it in bleach? Either that or Febreze. That stuff is supposed to get rid of any smell. But then your cinnamon would smell of fabric softener.

Don't want fabric softener cinnamon either. I think I'll stick with my old Smucker's Peanut Butter jars.

I wouldn't want bleach *or* fabric softener cinnamon

I would go with putting some of it in a small spice bottle and the rest in any glass jar you have. I think after some time, the cinnamon aroma will overcome the pasta sauce odor rather than the other way around, since the sauce is gone and ground cinnamon has a pretty strong smell.

I've read on some blogs that cinnamon should not be stored in the freezer. Has anyone else heard that?

Thanks! I found a simple glass jar at Bed Bath that should work great.
