OUR EVER POPULAR AND AWESOMELY DELICIOUS TRUE (Ceylon) CINNAMON
 

CEYLON THE BEST TASTING CINNAMON ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH..

    Cinnamon is a common spice that many people use in their homes, But few people have experienced the hauntingly delicious flavor of "True Cinnamon". Cinnamon is produced from several species of trees the easiest and most common species is known as Cassia. The cassia tree is the easiest to grow and the most common cinnamon found in grocery stores. The Ceylon species of cinnamon tree (True Cinnamon) is only grow to its finest maturity in the tree's native mineral rich soil on the volcanic island of Sri Lanka. Ceylon Cinnamon and Sri Lanka's affinity is so strong that the very botanical name of the spice - Cinnamon Zeylanicum is derived from the island's former name, Ceylon. (watch it being harvested in the above video) Ceylon Cinnamon groves in Sri Lanka lie exclusively in its western and southwestern regions, north and south of the country's commercial capital, Colombo. The tropical sunshine and abundant rain in these areas provide an ideal habitat, The sweetest, most prized variety grows in the "silver sand" coastal belt of the Negombo district, just north of Colombo. The Ceylon cinnamon tree is pruned down hard two years after a seedling is planted out. This produces "tillering" - a profuse, bushy growth of bark-yielding twigs whose five-nerved, shiny, fragrant leaves. At blossom time the small, creamy-white flowers attract swarms of birds and bees, which find their spicy fragrance irresistible. True Cinnamon makes awesome tasting confections, add to your coffee or tea. Buttered toast will never be the same again. Try it in smoothies on cereal hot or cold, baked apples, there is no end to the possibilities.
ONE TASTE AND YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO BE WITHOUT IT!
