Cinnamon ~ Indonesian Cassia$7.50 – $21.60
The Greek poet, Sappho, referenced Cassia in 7th century B.C. Though not the “true” Cinnamon, Cassia (also called Chinese Cinnamon) is often sold as Cinnamon in the U.S., where it’s preferred for its strong, spicy and lingering flavor.
Use in both sweet and strong savory dishes: candies, baked goods, meats, preserves, curries, and hot beverages. Cassia, with its intense aromatic qualities and taste, is the popular choice for Cinnamon Rolls.
Available whole in 6-inch quills (5 sticks per package) or milled to a powder.
Fenugreek$7.50 – $20.25
Fenugreek was one of the ingredients used in early Egypt incense that emitted the holy smoke for embalming and purification ceremonies. It is now most commonly used in Thai and Indian cuisines.
Add to curries and chutneys. Use sparingly as over using can cause bitterness in food.
Cloves$9.25 – $25.00
Despite attempts at clove monopolies, by the 18th century cloves were grown in many places including Brazil, Tanzania, and Madagascar. The whole Clove looks much like a nail, hence its French namesake, “clou” (nail).
Use in pastries, puddings, cooked fruits, and cakes, or sprinkle on oatmeal for a treat. Also yummy in stews and vegetables. Pairs well with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger.
