I am a big fan of flavour and spice, particularly chilli. In general I’d say I tend more towards the heavy-handed end of the spice spectrum when it comes to flavouring foods.
However it really is true you can have too much of a good thing.
This morning I was seasoning my morning bowl of muesli with cinnamon. Unfortunately in my pre-coffee haze I didn’t carefully check which end of the spice jar I was opening.
Instead of a healthy sprinkling of cinammon, I got 2 giant clumps of cinnamon, sitting happily on my yoghurt.
It was edible, but only just. I’m now sitting drinking my long-awaited coffee, and all I can taste is cinnamon.
First world problems, right?
