Cinnamon is one of the oldest known spices and was used by the Chinese as early as 2500 BC. There are two varieties of cinnamon Ceylon (also known as “true cinnamon” or Canela) and Cassia. Cassia Cinnamon is the standard cinnamon that is found in most American kitchens and of our two types of cinnamon, this one is probably the most familiar to you. 

Cassia cinnamon is grown in China, Indonesia and Vietnam. There are several types of cassia cinnamon the most common of which are Indonesian (also called Korintje or Korintji) and Vietnamese (also called Saigon). Cassia cinnamon is used throughout East Asia, South East Asia and here in the US while Ceylon cinnamon is more popular in Europe, Latin America, Mexico, the Middle East, North Africa  and South Asia.

The scientific name for Indonesian cassia is Cinnamomum burmannii. This is typically the cinnamon of choice for commercial bakeries in the US because of its good, familiar flavor and lower cost. We stock the highest quality Korintje cinnamon available - grade A with 3% cinnamon oil (most grocery stores usually carry Indonesian cinnamon with the the lower grade B or C which produces a much lower cinnamon oil content). Grade A n cinnamon provides the highest cinnamon oil content of all the Indonesian cinnamon grades while also delivering the most intense flavor and aroma. Grade A harvested quills must be one meter long and taken from the main trunk of the tree while the lesser grades come from the branches.

Korintje Cinnamon has a delicate spicy sweet flavor and is less bitter than Vietnamese Cinnamon.

We offer an excellent selection of some of the finest cinnamon including our top selling Vietnamese “Cassia” Cinnamon Powder with a 5%-6%  cinnamon oil content and Ceylon Cinnamon. You'll also find a complete selection of cinnamon sticks.

Use cinnamon in breads, buns, cakes, cookies, pies, pastries and other sweets. Sprinkle on toast, pancakes, waffles or in coffee.

Cinnamon pairs well with apples, bananas, cauliflower, chocolate, corn, grapes, nuts, onions, oranges, peaches, pumpkin, squashes and tomatoes.

A key ingredient in the spice blends apple pie, berbere, Chinese five spice, garam masala, apple pie and pumpkin pie. 

Some of our favorite recipes using cinnamon are
Peach Crumble, Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies, and to show that cinnamon isn't just for desserts Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Amritsari Chole (a classic Punjabi dish).
