Though often used interchangeably, cassia and cinnamon are not the same. Cinnamomum cassia (grown primarily in China and Indonesia) is reddish-brown and pungently sweet, while Cinnamomum zeylanicum (from Sri Lanka ) is buff-colored and mild. Cassia is usually preferred for its more intense color and flavor.
Ceylon (Cinnamomum verum) This cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka . The cultivated variety grows 8 to 10 feet and resembles a shrub rather than a tree. Cinnamon is the world's most popular baking spice. Used in cakes, breads, cookies, breads and pies, dumplings, puddings, pastries and ice cream. It's common in savory dishes, too--soups, chutneys, catsup, pickles, squash, vinegars and meat glazes--and hot drinks like cider, coffee, tea and cocoa. Cinnamon complements fruits like apricots, cherries, apples, blueberries and oranges. Vegetables, too--especially carrots, spinach and onions--are enhanced by cinnamon's pungent sweetness. In combination with other spices (like cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, allspice, and black pepper), cinnamon shows up in a wide array of our spice blends, including pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice, cider blends, five spice powder, curries.
