One of the most common kitchen spices, Cinnamon has a sweet, spicy flavour & woody fragrance and is used in a variety of sweet and savoury dishes

Suggested Uses

Cinnamon has so many uses It is used in pies, cakes, biscuits, and desserts, also in any milk, chocolate or apple based dishes to add sweet spiciness.

Cinnamon is great for pickling and in preserved goods.

Cinnamon is perfect sprinkled on top of cappuccinos and other hot drinks (especially nice in mulled wine) In savoury dishes, cinnamon adds an exotic Middle Eastern flavour that is especially suited to lamb and chicken – try it in your casseroles or stews!

Add to curries and savoury rice dishes.

The Variety

Cinnamon is the dried bark of the trees in the evergreen family of the genus Cinnamomum. Both the common varieties, Cinnamon & Cassia, are from different families of the same genus. Cinnamon is defined as the dried bark of the genus Cinnamomum and it is common usage to call them both “cinnamon”, with a majority of the market being of cassia origin.

For Your Appreciation

We have chosen our cinnamon for its punchy flavour that is demanded in kiwi baking & cooking. It has a more complex flavour than inferior Chinese Cassia.
Ceylon Cinnamon has a milder, more floral flavour that adds subtle depth to traditional Indian curries.

Cinnamon was highly prized in ancient times and has had documented use through history.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Can also help cure urinary tract infections, and some evidence suggests it may prevent stomach ulcers. Cassia is higher in coumarin but is perfectly safe as a baking cooking ingredient where it is appreciated for it's spicy full flavour. Cinnamon is an antiseptic and has been used medicinally for thousands of years to soothe stomach irritation, fight tooth decay and gum disease Cinnamon is known to be high in anti-oxidants, just one teaspoon of ground cinnamon is said to have as many antioxidants as 1/2 cup of blueberries! Cinnamon is rich in the natural polyphenols, compounds that can stabilize blood sugar and help ward off cravings for sweets! Cinnamon tea is warming and is said to increase blood flow, which increases circulation and helps boost metabolism, as well as aid in the reduction of inflammation. If you are using cinnamon for health benefits alone, I recommend sourcing Ceylon Cinnamon due to its low content of the compound coumarin. In addition to stabilizing blood sugar levels, cinnamon may also improve insulin function, which could lower the risk of diabetes. It has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties so it may help fight winter colds.
