Cinnamon and Honey jam

Posted by billzant on April 25, 2013

Picked this up online, thank you Sandy:-

and decided to try it – plenty of cinnamon and honey here in Thailand.

Here is the basic recipe:-

1. Dissolve a teaspoon of cinnamon powder (or ground cinnamon) in a cup of boiling water.
2. Stir and cover for half an hour.

3. Filter away any big particles and add a teaspoon of honey.

You can buy packets of cinnamon sticks here so I ground the cinnamon in the coffee mill (dry blender). Once filtered this makes a delicious healthy liquid, and many people take this. I wanted a jam/spread so I boiled the mixture again, added two spoons of agar agar
and have come up with a delicious spread for bread or toast. Well pleased.

Cinnamon and honey is apparently an Ayurvedic medicine. Benefits are written here.

    I uploaded too quickly. I used too much agar-agar and the jam was too solid. Have to get the balance right. Maybe one spoon or less for this amount of cinnamon and honey. The taste was still good but it was eating rock candy not jam.
