Red Ape Cinnamon
Below is information listed on their site~they explain it better than I can!Pure Ground Cassia Cinnamon and Cinnamon Sticks from Sumatra. You will quickly notice the difference in taste with our fragrant, sweet, organic cinnamon. This robust Korintje cinnamon from Sumatra is ideal for baking and will enliven the flavor of desserts, cookies and cinnamon rolls.
Red Ape Cinnamonâ„¢ is sustainably harvested in Indonesia from Cassia Cinnamon trees that are at least 20 years old. The Volatile Oil (V.O.) content is much higher in older trees resulting in a higher quality cinnamon.
You will notice that Red Ape Cinnamonâ„¢ is a lighter reddish brown color than the darker cinnamon you are accustomed to seeing. Only the pure inner cinnamon bark is ground and the extra outer bark that would normally dilute the final powder is disposed of. It is because of this grinding process that our cinnamon delivers a more intense cinnamon flavor experience.
5% of profits from sales of our cinnamon will be donated to programs dedicated to the protection and restoration of orangutan (a.k.a. The Red Ape) habitat in Indonesia.
I thought this cinnamon was really superb. The smell is for sure the first thing you notice when using it. It's intense smell makes me swoon! I have been able to use in several things in the past two weeks: Homemade Apple Butter, Homemade Applesauce, and Blueberry Oatmeal Bake. I have not been able to squeeze in making some cinnamon rolls yet....but believe me they are on the list! I was pleased with top quality service I received from the company as well. I recieved my product REALLY fast and it was wrapped with care to ensure I got a top-notch product without any damage.
buy it for only $6.59. Even better than that price, a pound of the organic pure cinnamon for $12.95!
