Cinnamon was such a rare spice in the era when Nero ruled Ancient Rome that it was only enjoyed by the wealthiest of citizens. More valuable than gold or silver, cinnamon from China and Southeast Asia had powerful medicinal qualities for ancient Greeks and Romans. So grief-stricken by the death of his second wife, in 65 AD Roman Emperor-turned-dictator Nero burned a year's supply of cinnamon at Poppaea Sabina's funeral to symbolize the depth of his sadness. Found in many an autumn recipe, the distinctive fragrance of cinnamon from a stove fills any home with a warm and cozy ambiance on a chilly day. A spicy confection for serious cinnamon freaks, these Red Hot Cinnamon Balls will hit the spot when you need a fix. Pop a pretty shiny dark red jawbreaker in your mouth and settle in to savor the sweet, peppery flavor that lasts for hours.
