Cinnamon Ground – cassia vera


Product description

Ground Cinnamon is the preferred form of the spice to use in cooking . Cinnamon powder is obtained from the inner bark of a tropical tree that has been ground to produce a fine powder. It has a brown colour and a warm, mild and sweet flavour favoured for use in winter and the traditional festive season, as it imparts a warm feeling. As it is difficult to grind the whole quills, it is recommended that ground cinnamon is bought separately for use in dishes where the powdered form is desired. Its warm flavour and aroma also make it a favoured spice in chai tea, Middle Eastern curries and rice dishes. It is also a key ingredient in the blend Chinese Five Spice.

The spice people carry pure cinnamon in varieties as cinnamon ground and cinnamon sticks, as well as cinnamon sugar



Culinary Notes :

Cinnamon Ground is the ground powder form of the Cinnamon Stick. It is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used in both sweet and savoury foods to impart a warm spice flavour. In the Middle East it is commonly paired with meats such as chicken and lamb. The term ‘cinnamon’ also refers to its mid-brown colour.
