The cinnamon leaves are harvested with care and love by our VIP (Very Important Producer) Nagaoka-san from the mountains of Wakayama, and are carefully dried and powdered so that the aroma does not blow away. Normal cinnamon is processed using the bark and roots, but in our garden, we process the leaves to make green cinnamon powder. Please enjoy its singular refreshing color, scent, and taste.
Speaking of which, the elegant three-veined cinnamon leaves taste spicier, punchier, and less sweet than the common cinnamon bark. Its powerful, spicy, and musky aroma has a full and round attack with a fruity nose full of strong clove and woody citrus notes. Compared to the common cinnamon powder, it’s a truly wonderful and versatile spice that will surely give a kick to your favorite recipes, and not just dessert.
Cinnamon is a very popular spice worldwide, widely used for sweetness in the West, while in Eastern cuisine it is cooked with savory dishes, especially red meats and poultry. Cinnamon leaves powder is greener, cleaner, fresher, sharper, and so it will give a distinctive character to your dishes, both sweet and savory.
With a perfectly balanced flavor and a slightly salty, slightly sweet taste with a delicate aroma of cinnamon and pepper, this cinnamon leaves powder works like a charm with everything and we suggest you try it first in combination with apple, chocolate, or even chicken.
In your desserts and sweet dishes, add some to your pastry for cakes, your cookies, compotes, fruits, soft foods, creams, pies (apple or pear pie), yogurt, jams, rice pudding, well, in a word, in all your sweet preparations!
In your savory dishes, its subtle and bewitching fragrance will flavor while remaining very discreet!
