About Organic Ground Cinnamon
Cinnamon is the dried inner bark of various evergreen trees belonging to the genus Cinnamomum. At harvest, the bark is stripped off and put in the sun, where it curls into the familiar form called "quills”. It is a sweet, mildly pungent spice from the tropical highlands of Asia.
Ground cinnamon was imported to Egypt as early as 2000 BC. It was highly prized among ancient nations and was even used as a gift for monarchs. Although it’s usually known as a baking spice, it is also used in more savoury dishes such as lamb and chicken in the Middle East. Cinnamon has been a prized spice for over one thousand years, and for good reason!
What does Organic Ground Cinnamon Taste Like?
Cinnamon has a woody, sweet fragrance and a sweet-spicy flavour due to an aromatic essential oil that makes up .5 to 1% of its composition.
