We most often think of cinnamon as a sweet spice used to make such delicious treats as Pumpkin Rolls and Snickerdoodles. But it can also serve double duty in savory dishes. It adds a wonderful warm and spicy note to long-cooked braises and hearty soups, like the recipes we’ve rounded up here. We’ve collected these cinnamon-infused recipes in our internet wanderings: • Roasted Acorn Squash with Cinnamon-Butter from Martha Stewart - This dish is really borderline sweet-savory! • Lamb Tagine with Prunes and Cinnamon from Gourmet - Cinnamon pulls together the rich flavor of lamb and the deep sweetness of the prunes. • Chicken Biriyani with Saigon Cinnamon from Saveur - The chicken and rice are cooked together in this dish, infusing both with incredible flavor. • Pork Noodle Soup with Cinnamon and Anise from Epicurious - This fragrant broth must make the house smell delicious. • Cinnamon Braised Short Ribs with Seasonal Vegetables from Food52 - Cinnamon and a dash of Grand Marnier compliment the intense richness of the short ribs. • Bolognese Meat Sauce from Simply Recipes - The cinnamon is super subtle in this classic dish, but really warms it up. • Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Asian Pork Shoulder from Real Simple - Cloves and coriander join the cinnamon in this dish for a sweet and smoky flavor.
