Burlap & Barrel - Cinnamon Verum (Ceylon cinnamon)
Our ground Cinnamon Verum (aka Ceylon or "true" cinnamon) is grown by a cooperative of farmers in Zanzibar. With notes of pine, citrus peel and sea salt, this is the perfect cinnamon for savory dishes. Cinnamon Verum is a subtle, savory cinnamon variety that may be different from the cinnamon you're used to, with a beautiful aroma and flavor that really comes out when the cinnamon is cooked.
If you're looking for a more familiar but extra-sweet and spicy cinnamon, you might like our Royal Cinnamon as well.
This cinnamon is the inner bark of the Cinnamomum verum tree. It's perfect for savory dishes like tomato sauces, stews, chili and barbecue rubs, as well as for baked goods and breakfasts like oatmeal or pancakes.
Burlap & Barrel is the sole importer of Zanzibar spices to the US. Like all of the spices from our partner cooperative in Zanzibar, our Cinnamon Verum is grown organically.
