Cinnamon dates back thousands of years as it was not only used as a spice, but in traditional Chinese medience as well. Native to Sri Lanka, the Cinnamomum verum, called "true cinnamon tree" or Ceylon cinnamon tree is a small evergreen tree in which its inner bark is used to make cinnamon.
Our Cinnamon comes directly from the Ceylon cinnamon tree which is harvested from the "mature" portion of the trunk by stripping off the bark and rolling it inside of the other. After being dried at low temperatures, it is carefully milled into fine powder to retain the high nutritional value and allows for maximum digestion and absorption when consumed.
Cinnamon can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. It's mild, sweet taste is perfect for cookies, cakes, coffee, oatmeal, and breads as well as curries, sauces, vegetable dishes, mulling wines, mulling apple cider and punches.
