to all who responded to my cinnamon question. The practical upshot, is that I
obtained a quantity of cinnamon from a local Asian market, and before I knew
it, my 17-year-old daughter had made a very good bread pudding!

Here is a quotation I found in a
reference book called "Disinfection, Sterilization, and Preservation"
by Seymour S. Block:
Both cinnamylphenol and cinnamic
aldehyde are components of cinnamon that have antimicrobial properties.
Cinnamylphenol may be used to preserve fruit juices.
