Cracked "Saigon" Vietnamese Cassia Cinnamon
Saigon cinnamon, Cinnamomum loureiroi, is our most popular cinnamon by far, and we are consistently proud of its freshness and incredibly strong, spicy, sweet flavor. This cassia bark cinnamon is ideal for mulling cider, steeping with coffee grounds, brewing, or grinding fresh in your new spice mill! Try grinding fresh cinnamon over vanilla ice cream or a cappuccino.
Star anise is common in many Chinese dishes, especially recipes involving pork or chicken. Also known as Chinese anise, it features the same three essential oils as the unrelated anise seed. Use your freshly ground star anise to add lively and delicious flavors to homemade barbecue sauce and rubs. Freshly ground star anise is terrific when added to baked goods. Try adding ground star anise to cinnamon rolls!
These cloves come from the island of Sri Lanka and have a delightfully strong and sweet flavor. Grind these cloves fresh and use them for outstanding sweet baked goods, bbq sauces, curries, and pumpkin dishes. Ground cloves' potent flavor pairs deliciously with meat such as pork, lamb, beef, and fruits and vegetables like beets, apples, squash, pumpkin, and sweet onion.
