Burlap & Barrel Royal Cinnamon
When Bon Appétit's Editors mentioned that using Burlap & Barrel's Royal Cinnamon totally transformed a humble applesauce cake into something special we bookmarked it as something to try!
Royal Cinnamon is a heirloom variety (species Cinnamomum loureiroi) from the mountains around the ancient Vietnamese capital city of Huế and is not widely harvested or exported. Intensely sweet and spicy, it will elevate everything from your morning oatmeal to your favourite baked goods and is also amazing in savoury tomato-based or meat dishes - be mindful of it's intensity and start with less cinnamon than you usually use in your recipes.
Burlap & Barrel is a US-based spice company that is working to bring exceptional spices to their customers while building new international spice supply chains that are equitable, transparent and traceable.
