True Sri Lankan Cinnamon, Ground
This variant is currently sold out.
True soft-stick, Ceylon cinnamon, is from Sri Lanka, but interestingly is not the cinnamon flavour we know and love in North America. This more citrusy variety is commonly used in Mexico, the largest importer of cinnamon, known locally as canela. Cinnamon does not taste sweet itself but enhances sweetness in other ingredients. Also, great in savoury meat dishes common in Morocco and Mexico.
The flavour compounds present in cinnamon disperse well in fat or alcohol, they do not dissolve well in water. It's begging to be mixed with butter. Add early in the cooking process to give time to diffuse.
