Suggested Uses

    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.

    – It is commonly used in pies, cakes, biscuits, and desserts to add sweet spiciness.
    – Adds a depth of flavour in any milk, chocolate or apple based dishes.
    – Use Cinnamon when pickling and in preserved goods.
    – Cinnamon is perfect sprinkled on top of cappuccinos and other hot drinks (it is especially nice in mulled wine).
    – For Cinnamon Tea; break a cinnamon stick and steep for 10 minutes in a cup of boiling water. Sweeten with a little honey if required.
    – 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.

     

     

    Additional Information

     
    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.
