The highest grade of Sri Lankan cinnamon is 00000. Our friends Sanath and Deepa then make a further selection from their warehouse especially for us. Deepa and Sanath’s cinnamon is the only one we use in our blends. Their plantation is situated in sandy soil in the village of Cinnamon, Sri Lanka, a few hundred meters from the Indian Ocean.
The quills of 00000 Cinnamon are so thin that they crumble to dust when rolled between the fingers. Like pepper, a pinch of this true cinnamon is enough to improve all sorts of dishes. It can be used in liberal quantities in desserts, curries, slow-cooked dishes and baked goods.
