A while back I posted that a precious friend of ours, from California, passed away a couple of years ago. When I was out visiting with his wife, she passed on to me hundreds of Dave’s recipes which he loved. This is one of those recipes. It also gives a little background about McCormick Cinnamon, which is interesting so will share that also.
“One of McCormick’s favorite destinations is Saigon, where they source premium Saigon Cinnamon. The cinnamon forests in this beautiful Vietnamese Countryside yield the most aromatic and flavorful cinnamon, with twice the volatile oils or regular cinnamon. McCormick global journeys allow your palate to experience international flavor adventures. Begin your own flavor adventure with this remarkable recipe.”
