Cassia Cinnamon is sweet and intensely warm, with a pungency that embraces you before you even have a chance to taste it. Our Cassia Cinnamon Sticks are woodsy, musty, a little earthy, but have an ethereal perfume that elevates its flavor and belies their origins as a piece of tree bark. Called quills when they dry and curl into themselves, Cassia Cinnamon Sticks are harvested from the outer bark of the Cinnamomum cassia tree. The outer bark produces the highest quality quill, with an essential oil content of approximately 2.5% by weight. The essential oil is the architect behind Cassia Cinnamon’s distinctive fragrance and flavor.

With its enticing flavor and ambrosial fragrance, cinnamon has always been a desirable commodity. Ancient traders protected their routes fiercely, making up fantastic stories about monsters that guarded cinnamon. Greek historian Herodotus wrote in the 5th century BCE about a cinnamon bird, an enormous bird that kept quills in its nest; the traders could only harvest cinnamon by luring the fierce creature from its nest with ox meat. Another ancient story tells of cinnamon quills growing in a snake pit, and traders had to fight their way in to harvest. Secret trade routes existed into Egypt, dismantled by the rise of Mediterranean powers like the Ottoman Empire, which altered the face of global trading as it solidified its reign in 1299.

 

Tips From Our Kitchen

 

Cassia Cinnamon Sticks have an intense flavor that is well-suited for the flavorful and spice heavy dishes in Indian cuisine. Toast sticks first to draw out essential oils and add to curries, or go Middle Eastern and add to tagines. Make a Vietnamese pho soup, or savory Mexican albondigas and spike the ingredients in the pot with Cassia Cinnamon Sticks. Add to mulled ciders or wines to add a sense of cozy warmth to cold-weather beverages. Dip Cassia Cinnamon Sticks in chocolate and use them to stir coffee. If you want to mix this right into your hot chocolate, we have Ground Korintje Cinnamon available, too! These sticks are sturdy and resistant to breaking, so use them to decorate wreaths and garlands for the holidays. 

We sell our cinnamon sticks by weight and not by count, so you will receive four or five cinnamon sticks per ounce, depending on how large the sticks are.

Our Cassia Cinnamon Sticks may come from either Indonesia or India, depending on product availability.
