Bulk Vietnamese Cinnamon For Baking

Sharp, spicy, and much warmer than all origins of cinnamon, Vietnamese cinnamon is the perfect product for those who like their cinnamon to bring the heat.  Vietnamese cinnamon is the strongest of all cinnamons in the world. The spicy notes of these cinnamon quills come from cinnamaldehyde, an essential oil present in all cinnamon varieties. The highest concentrations of cinnamaldehyde are found in Vietnamese grown cinnamon, helping to give this cinnamon a unique spicy flavor and sweet aroma.

Where do cinnamon sticks come from?

Cinnamon quills of all varieties come from the bark of several types of evergreen trees: c. loureiric ( more closely related to cassia than Ceylon), c.cassia, and c. verum (Ceylon). These trees are native to regions of the world such as Vietnam, China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, and even Mexico. To form the quills of the woodier varieties of cinnamon, the first layer of the inner bark is peeled from the evergreen shoots and dried in the sun over many days. The sun drying is what results in the natural curling of the quills.  Quills are then cut to a specific length to meet market demands.  

How to use Vietnamese cinnamon  

When using a whole cinnamon stick, drop the quill in your liquid of choice to add a wonderful cinnamon aroma and flavor to any dish or beverage.  If you need to grind your cinnamon, we recommend breaking it into smaller pieces (just know this cinnamon is tougher and woodier than other varieties) and using a spice grinder. Pulse until you get just the right consistency you are looking for.  If you are looking for pre-ground Saigon cinnamon, hop on over to our Saigon cinnamon powder page where you will find premium quality cinnamon powder from Vietnam available for purchase in a multitude of sizes.

Great stuff

I put 8 or so sticks into a glass lidded container with a pint or so of water and bring to a boil. Remove to cool enough to taste. If it tastes good, then enjoy it all. If not enough taste, reheat, and try again. The sticks can be reused until they stop giving a very pleasant beverage with no additives. Great stuff!!
