Cinnamon, Chinese Cassia, Ground
Chinese cassia cinnamon has the second highest oil content of the four cinnamons we carry, which is 3-4%. Cassia is what we here in the States commonly known as cinnamon. However, in reality, “true” cinnamon is the bark of an actual cinnamon tree, whereas what we know as cinnamon is the bark of a cassia tree.
“Once in a young lifetime one should be allowed to have as much sweetness as one can possibly want and hold.”
- Judith Olney
Chinese cassia cinnamon is sweet and rich with just a touch of spiciness; perfect for all your baking needs. Try this cinnamon in pies, pastries and other sweets. Sprinkle on toast, pancakes, waffles or in coffee. Pairs well with pumpkin and other squashes and is a necessary ingredient in many savory dishes.
