Cinnamon, Ceylon, "True", Organic

Native to Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and still grown there today, this is the preferred cinnamon in England and Mexico. We refer to this as “true” cinnamon because that is exactly what it is, the bark of a cinnamon tree. In the States, what we know as cinnamon is really the bark of a cassia tree.

In 1500 B.C. the Egyptian Queen Hatsheput used cinnamon in her perfumes.

This cinnamon comes from the more mature trunk of the tree while the non-organic Ceylon cinnamon comes from the quills. The higher oil content from the trunk bark leads to a more potent, spicier, longer lasting flavor than the non-organic Ceylon, although it still has that wonderful hint of citrus.
