Details: Cinnamon is among the most beloved scents and flavors of the holiday season, so you're probably familiar with its pleasant aroma and sweet-but-spicy taste. But did you know that there is more than one kind of cinnamon? When you're ready to kick things up a notch, Saigon cinnamon is what you should reach for.Thanks to its high content of essential oils, Saigon cinnamon is stronger than other kinds of cinnamon. It is both spicier and sweeter than regular cinnamon, with a taste that is often compared to red hot candies. Ground Saigon cinnamon is often used in Vietnamese cooking and baking. Four types of cinnamon are commercially available: Saigon cinnamon, Korintje cinnamon, Chinese cinnamon, and Ceylon cinnamon. Of these, Ceylon cinnamon is the mildest, and Saigon is the strongest. Often, recipes don't specify which type of cinnamon to use. However, most well-established recipes from Europe and the Middle East mean Ceylon cinnamon, as do most Mexican recipes. American recipes, on the other hand, usually call for Cassia cinnamon, which is the most common kind in the United States. You can substitute one type of cinnamon for another, but keep in mind that the flavor will be slightly different. Saigon cinnamon is sweet and spicy, while Cassia cinnamon is spicy and bitter. Ceylon cinnamon is mildly sweet, and Korintje cinnamon is spicy. Saigon cinnamon can also be used in many recipes that call for ground cinnamon. Use it to add a little extra warmth and complexity to oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, or try it in your favorite ginger cookies recipe. Sprinkle some into your oatmeal, coffee, or chili as an alternative to whole cinnamon. Although Saigon cinnamon is most popular in desserts and baked goods, it can complement everything from vegetables and rice to meat.
