About Ground Cinnamon

Cinnamon is one of the oldest known spices in the world. It has a complex flavor profile that can be described as sweet, spicy, savory, woody, and extremely aromatic. If you enjoy baking, ground cinnamon is likely one of your kitchen essentials.

This ground cinnamon is Indonesian Korintje cinnamon, the most common type of cassia cinnamon used in the US. It’s the highest quality Korintje cinnamon available — grade A with 2-3% cinnamon oil (most grocery stores carry the lower grade B or C variety).

Cinnamon powder is most commonly used to flavor sweets such as pastries, breads, cakes, pies, and puddings. It can also be added to savory dishes like stews, soups, roasted vegetables, meat glazes, chutneys, and dumplings. Additionally, you may enjoy ground cinnamon in hot beverages such as tea, coffee, cocoa, cider, or mulled wine.

Cinnamon cultivation

The highest quality cinnamon bark comes from trees that are 15-25 years old. When it’s harvest time, farmers cut down the trees and remove the bark in large pieces. These are then dried in the sun for several days, causing the bark to curl into quills which are separated by quality and packaged for export. The top exporters of cinnamon are Sri Lanka (32%), Indonesia, China, and Vietnam.
