Description

Cinnamon is one of the oldest known spices. Cinnamon was mentioned in the Bible, and was used in ancient Egypt not only as a beverage flavoring and medicine, but also as an embalming agent and in love potions. At one time it was so highly treasured that it was considered more precious than gold!

There are two types of cinnamon commonly found on the market today: Ceylon and Cassia. Both are actually the bark of one of two types of tree and are available dried in a tubular form known as a stick or quill, or ground.

Ceylon or Cinnamomum zeylanicum yields a very brittle bark with a particularly intense aroma and flavor that some tasters consider reminiscent of red hots. Cassia is a much harder bark and comes from the Cinnamomum cassia plant. The aroma and flavor of Cassia cinnamon is typically what most people expect (at least in the US) when they think of cinnamon.

This ground cinnamon is the Ceylon variety, and we find it to offer the most complex flavors and aromas that work well in both sweet and savory dishes.

Please note our spices are listed by volume, not weight, unless otherwise specified.
