Cinnamomum Cassia, better known as cinnamon cassia, is a spice that grows on the cinnamon tree, a tree that, as an adult, can reach 15m in height.
Cinnamon cassia is in fact the inner layer of the bark of the cinnamon tree which, as it dries, curls up on itself to give the cinnamon "sticks" as we know them.
The cassia cinnamon tree is part of the Lauraceae family. It is found in the wild forests of South Asia: Indonesia, India... With its evergreen foliage, it is recognizable by its typical and powerful bark smell
To harvest cassia cinnamon, it is important to wait until the stems of the cinnamon tree are full of sap. This is why cinnamon is harvested in the spring, during the period of heavy rains.
The grower works the bark with a non-sharp blade. He makes circular movements 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, the cinnamon develops its sweet aromas. To obtain powdered cinnamon, one must wait until the rolls are dry before grinding them.

Cette cannelle est très savoureuse sans être trop puissante. Je la mélange avec du sucre de canne fin et je roule la pâte de mes cookies dedans avant cuisson. Tout le monde adore! l'autre variante est de rouler la pâte dans ce délicieux sucre à la fève Tonka...Une merveille!
