Cinnamon - True

Mexico / Cinnamomum verum
  • Double sized cinnamon true

The mild and exotic flavor of this rare varietal only hints at the cassia-cinnamon to which we are more accustomed. Don't jump to the conclusion that "true" means better or stronger, it is a botanical distinction of this distinctive variety. Mild and complex, it lends a unique flavor.

Use true cinnamon for a mellow flavor on its own or in combination with cassia for heavenly flavors in baked goods. Grind only what you need for each use because it loses flavor quickly.
