If there’s one spice you must try from The Spice House, it’s cinnamon. We even carry three distinct varieties; Ceylon and two of its cassia relatives. Americans will be most familiar with Indonesian ‘Korintje’ cassia cinnamon, the variety most bakers choose. This is a smooth mellow cinnamon that’s reminiscent of mom’s French toast. Ceylon, or ‘true’, cinnamon is from the island of Sri Lanka. Ceylon cinnamon is the principal cinnamon in Europe and Mexico, offering a subtle, citrusy flavor to puddings, pastries, and poached fruit. Vietnamese ‘Saigon’ cassia cinnamon is the strongest and sweetest cinnamon in our collection. Its sweet and spicy flavor makes it perfect for cinnamon-forward recipes like cinnamon rolls or snickerdoodles.
