I believe that the ornaments made from powdered cinnamon that have been
popular for the last few years are made by mixing the powdered spice with
applesauce, as some of the folks on the Cook's list mentioned. Should work
just as well with other spices! But if you don't want the sweet scent from the
applesauce, you certainly use one of the gums as the "mortar". Be a lot more
expensive, though, if more period.
