Cinnamon Sticks

Our Cinnamon Sticks, or Quills, are from Indonesia, the species Cinnamomum burmanii a type of evergreen tree. Indonesia provides the majority of cinnamon used in the United States. It is known for a full, pungent flavor and aroma due to the higher level of Coumarin. While there are over 100 species of cinnamon around the world, only 4 of these are harvested for commercial purposes. The other major cinnamon species are Vietnamese (or Saigon Cinnamon), Ceylon, (which is grown in several countries), and Cassia, which is also known as Chinese Cinnamon. Ceylon is widely used in Europe as it was the first commercially brought into Europe during the spice trade days.

Cinnamon sticks don’t have the same cooking pungency as powdered unless simmered in the dish, so use whatever variety your recipe asks for.

Cinnamon can be used in many ways from cooking and spice blends to its use in tea and other beverages.
