Cassia Bark, Whole

Product Size: 14g
Heat Rating

Product Overview

Whole Cassia Bark or ‘Chinese cinnamon’ has a slightly sweet flavour with pungent, tart notes. Cassia has a similar flavour profile to cinnamon, although it offers a more potent taste. Cassia bark is also thicker than cinnamon quills that can be ground into a fine powder. It is usually used whole in slow-cooked dishes where it can release its warm, sweet flavours.

Cassia bark is great used in pulse-based dishes like dals. Red meats such as lamb and beef also benefit from its bittersweet flavours. Try using cassia within stews and curries instead of cinnamon for a more potent taste.

    I used this freshly ground and whole in an Indian dish last night while i was experimenting. Could have peeled this off the tree myself it was so authentic. Spice pioneers posted my spice to Australia and i was particularly worried about not getting this one through customs but it arrrived and was celebrated in my cooking. Whole bark dry fried was amazing and sweet but grounded turned up the taste in my curry. Out went my old bark which was ageing and in comes the new one. I can’t wait to use it again and im sure many a repeat order. Another winner for me guys..Alan
