Cinnamon is a popular spice that flavors many holiday favorites such as gingerbread, pumpkin pie, and cinnamon rolls. Cinnamon comes from the bark of an evergreen tree and its spicy, warm fragrance and zesty flavor adds pungent depth to your favorite baked goods. You can also use it to add zing to savory dishes. Oryana sells several varieties of cinnamon as well as cinnamon sticks to suit your holiday baking and cooking needs.
