Burlap and Barrel Tanzanian Ground Cinnamon Verum

The Ground Cinnamon Verum from Burlap and Barrel is Ceylon cinnamon, also known as true cinnamon for its superior quality, delicate flavor and health benefits. We love how the aroma is noticeably sweeter and more floral than conventional cassia cinnamon—this product is also fresher than other brands we've tasted, so you can fully appreciate its unique characteristics. Only the youngest, sweetest branches of the cinnamon trees on Zanzibar are hand-cut and ground to make this wonderfully light and sweetly spicy ground cinnamon.

New York-based Burlap and Barrel is the sole U.S. importer of Tanzanian spices. The company sources high-quality ingredients with an emphasis on sustainability and accountability, values that directly lead them to small producers whose spices are uniquely flavored because they remain untouched by industrial agriculture systems. These organic single-origin products from the Zanzibar archipelago have a light, nuanced flavor and delicate aroma that results from their surrounding island terroir. They are unlike any baking spices we have ever tasted.

Burlap and Barrel's Cinnamon Verum is best used in recipes that won't mask its delicate flavor. Try it in our Black Pepper Cinnamon Yogurt, which benefits from this lighter variety to balance out the earthier spice of the black pepper. We also like it as a key flavoring for buttery cookies such as shortbread or our Semolina Polvorones. Cinnamon Verum is also the perfect cinnamon for garnishing, whether you sprinkle it on eggnog or dust it over fruit desserts that are served with whipped cream or ice cream. Its floral notes pair perfectly with citrus, especially oranges—try it in our Chocolate-Orange Tart.
