Unparalleled taste with a fiery bite❣
Nothing beats the intensity of freshly ground Cinnamon: a sumptuous, deliciously aromatic spice that’s a key ingredient for anyone who loves to bake. From sugary baked goods to savory Indian, Moroccan, and Middle Eastern dishes —it also plays well in both sweet and savory dishes, pies, baked goods, stews and curries, warm cereal and to enhance most hot beverages— Cinnamon is a mainstay spice across cultures and palates, one of the world’s oldest and most widely used spices, well regarded for its health properties and versatility.
❖ Origin & Flavor profile
Cassia Cinnamon originates from the inner bark of evergreen cassia trees in the laurel family —of the genus Cinnamomum— that grows naturally in the high mountainous regions of Northern and Central Vietnam. Cinnamon’s bark curls into pungently sweet quills when dried, which are then ground into the ground cinnamon powder you sprinkle onto apple slices or oatmeal.
Vietnamese cassia (a.k.a. Cannelle de Saïgon) has the highest oil content of all cinnamons, generally 4-6% by weight, so it is the most sweet, spicy and pungent by far, and considered to be the most aromatic of all the cinnamons. The unique flavor, incredibly strong, sweet and spicy aroma, and earthy warm heat are derived from an essential oil called cinnamaldehyde.
Traditionally used in Chinese Five Spice or Indian Garam Masala, Cinnamon is a versatile and widely used spice. It really is a must-try. Once you taste this stuff, highly prized among bakers and chefs, nothing else compares, but of course its strength and single-note aggressiveness are not suitable for every dish. Cassia Cinnamon is a perfect spice to use during the winter months.
We grind our cinnamon fresh every other week so that you get the best possible flavor and aroma from your dark, reddish-brown shade and rich, sweet and spicy Saratoga Spicery Cassia Cinnamon, the boldest and most potent variety available.

This rare Premium Pepper are considered the highest grade of black pepper to come out of what is regarded as to be the finest black pepper production area in the world along the Malabar coast of Western India. The outer skin of the berry is thicker, meaning a higher concentration of essential oil to impart the noticeably pungent aroma to the pepper.
More mature compared to all other black peppercorns, these tiny giants selfishly absorbed more nutrients when growing on the vine (yes, they grow on vines!) to become the best of the bunch. Packed with bright balanced fresh flavors and a complex somewhat sweet aroma these peppercorns are superior in every way.
