Details

Cinnamon is sourced from the bark of various species of the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamomum is a tree farmed in much of Asia, though primarily in Indonesia, China, and Vietnam. The spicy and unique flavor, sweet aroma, and warm heat are derived from an essential oil called cinnamaldehyde.

To produce cinnamon, a tree is grown for about 2 years. Afterwards, it is chopped down to a stump, from which dozens of small shoots will spring up. The shoots are allowed to mature and thicken to about two inches in diameter. After the green outer bark is shaved off the inner bark is bruised and struck evenly until it releases from the heart of the wood. This inner bark is then removed in large sheets, cut into strips, and air-dried. These strips are then curled into quills of cinnamon that are then further dried in ovens or by baking them outside under the sun. After achieving a sufficient tan the quills are sent on their way to the world.

These chips are perfect for use when making homemade chai tea blends, pickling spice blends, or if you’re brewing your own spirits. In addition, we love to keep them on hand for the spice grinder to add to coffee and tea, or to toss into curries or masalas. During winter, take a small spoonful and drop them into simmering pots of cider and wine you plan to mull through the afternoon before a big holiday party. Since we use Korintje cinnamon you get a rounded, sweet cinnamon flavor with a mild bite that won’t overpower your recipe.
