Cinnamon is a traditional seasoning in many Middle Eastern and Asian dishes.

Ground cassia bark is often preferred over other varieties of cinnamon to flavor curries, pastries and meats because of its milder but sweeter taste.

what else you should know


Cinnamomum cassia is a spice made from the dried and ground bark of a tree in the laurel family. Because this species is originally native to China, it is also known as Chinese cassia or Chinese cinnamon.

This particular variety of cinnamon is sometimes called "bastard" cinnamon because it is not considered to be the "true" cinnamon bark harvested from the Ceylon species. It is, however, the most commonly sold variety in western grocery markets. It is also preferred over other kinds of cinnamon for use in baking because it has a sweeter taste.
