Cinnamon Pieces 3-6 mm Cassia Organic
Origins and history of Cinnamon
Cinnamon is a spice made from the inner bark of the shoots of the cinnamon tree. There are many varieties of cinnamon. The best known varieties are ceylon cinnamon and cassia cinnamon. Of these, cassia cinnamon is more burning and sweeter than ceylon cinnamon.
All types of cinnamon powder are cultivated in tropical countries. Our cinnamon powder cassia comes from Indonesia. The name cinnamon comes from the Latin word canella, which means stick. Around the year 2800 BC cinnamon is already named. Cinnamon was also known in ancient Egypt and was used in perfume.
In around 1580, the Portuguese ruled over Ceylon, which is now Sri Lanka. This also gave them a monopoly on the cinnamon trade. The Dutch succeeded in establishing cinnamon plantations in Indonesia and since then Indonesia exports 8000 tons of cinnamon per year.
Taste and use
Cassia cinnamon, also called true cinnamon, has a deep red colour and a sharp and bitter taste. It combines well with sweet and savoury dishes. The cinnamon can be used in coffee, smoothies, bakery products, applesauce or stewed pears, but also in sauces and marinades.
