Organic Cinnamon Sticks
Botanical Name: Cinnamomum Verum
Whole cinnamon sticks are a versatile addition to your spice cabinet. You may be surprised to learn that there are two varieties of cinnamon commonly found in kitchens, true cinnamon, and cassia cinnamon. Both varieties are made from the bark of a tree which is curled into the traditional stick shape. The flavors of cassia cinnamon sticks tend to be on the sweeter side, making them a great accompaniment for baked goods or other sugary treats. Cassia cinnamon also has a stronger flavor, and the sticks themselves tend to be a bit thicker and sturdier. When used in savory dishes, this spice adds complexity and brings out new flavors. It can be an especially good addition to curries and roasted meats.
Cinnamon sticks bulk are a great option for stocking up your pantry. They will keep in the spice cabinet for a few years, giving you plenty of time to use them in a wide array of dishes. Cassia cinnamon is a strong spice, and it won't take much to bring out the flavors you want.
A few of the many ways you can use cassia cinnamon sticks are:
- Add to simmering stews or broths.
- Simmer in stovetop potpourri.
- Use as a stirring stick for hot drinks.
- Add to slow-cooked or roasted meats.
