|Our Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks are imported from Madagascar. Ceylon cinnamon is also called "true cinnamon" and in Mexico is known as "canela". We also carry Korintje Cassia Cinnamon Sticks 2.75" and Saigon Cassia Cinnamon Sticks 2.75" for those that prefer a harder Cinnamon stick.
Cinnamon has been one of the most popular baking spices in most cultures for hundreds of years. Cinnamon has a delicate, yet intense flavor that is ideally suited for breads, cookies, cakes, ice cream, pastries, cottage cheese and we also enjoy it in our morning oatmeal.
Ground cinnamon is paler in color while also being more convenient to use but it will also lose its potent flavor quicker than cinnamon sticks do. Cinnamon lover’s will buy their cinnamon in the stick form and use a handy spice grater to get the maximum flavor intensity. Cinnamon Sticks are a terrific compliment to hot drinks like cider, tea, coffee and cocoa.
Our Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks are sold by weight and you will get approximately twelve to fourteen 2.75” sticks per ounce.
We also carry Korintje Cinnamon Powder and our top quality Saigon Cinnamon Powder with a 5%-6% cinnamon oil content for optimum flavor.
Cinnamon combines well with other spices such as allspice, black pepper, cardamom, cloves, ginger and nutmeg.
Some of our favorite recipes using Ceylon "True" Cinnamon are Mole Sauce, Spiced Cranberry Cider, Ginger Pear Shooters and Indian Chicken Curry.
