Test Kitchen Tips
  • Cinnamon comes in two basic types: Ceylon and cassia. Ceylon cinnamon’s delicate, complex flavor is ideal for ice creams and simple sauces. The spicy, bolder cassia cinnamon (often labeled simply as cinnamon) is preferred for baking.
  • Go for freshly squeezed lemon juice when preparing this recipe. Bottled lemon juice, which is from concentrate, won’t provide the same bright, fresh flavor.
