Cinnamomum Cassia, better known as cassia cinnamon, is a spice that grows on the cinnamon tree, a tree that can reach 15m in height as an adult.
Cassia cinnamon is actually the inner layer of the bark of the cinnamon tree that, as it dries, curls up on itself until it gives the cinnamon "sticks" as we know them.
The cinnamon tree is part of the Lauraceae family. It is found in the wild forests of South Asia: Indonesia, India... Endowed with evergreen foliage, it is recognizable by its typical and powerful smell of bark
To harvest cassia cinnamon, it is important to wait until the stems of the cinnamon tree are full of sap. This is why the cinnamon harvest is carried out in spring, during the period of heavy rains.
The grower works the bark with a non-edged blade. He makes circular gestures on the trunk to detach the bark from the tree.
As it dries, the bark folds back on itself until it forms rolls. During this phase, cinnamon develops its sweet aromas. To obtain powdered cinnamon, it is necessary to wait until the rolls are well dry before grinding them.

Pas encore testé, mais l'odeur de cette cannelle ne ressemble en rien à celle qu'on trouve en supermarchés. Elle sent délicieusement bon, hâte de l'essayer ! Je recommande.

Magique. J'aimais déjà beaucoup la cannelle que l'on trouve dans le commerce mais là c'est un autre niveau. Il y a un monde entre cette superbe cannelle et l'industrielle. Concernant l'emballage, c'est vrai que la pochette plastique n'est pas très pratique pour les épices en poudre.
