This organic Indonesian cinnamon, Cinnamomum burmannii, is the cassia cinnamon commonly used here in the US. Korintje is typically the cinnamon of choice for commercial bakeries because of its good, familiar flavor and relatively low cost. Hungry Gene's Korintje cinnamon is the highest quality Korintje cinnamon available -- grade A with 2-3% cinnamon oil. This cinnamon powder adds a wonderful sweet flavor to breads, pastries and puddings. It can be sprinkled on ice cream as well! It can also be used in savory dishes like chutneys, dumplings, pickles, meat glazes, soups, stews, squash and even vinegars. It's also an outstanding enhancement to hot drinks like coffee, cocoa, cider and tea.
Korintje cinnamon works well in combination with chocolate, nuts and yogurt in addition to a variety of fruits and vegetables. It also pairs nicely with other spices such as allspice, black pepper, cardamom, cloves, ginger and nutmeg.
Take care not to overcook as it will taste bitter.
