Cinnamon is a spice obtained from the inner bark of the plant from the genus Cinnamomum that is used in both sweet and savory foods. The term “cinnamon” also refers to its mid-brown colour.

Cinnamon is the name for perhaps a dozen species of trees and the commercial spice products that some of them produce. All are members of the genus Cinnamomum in the family Lauraceae. Only a few of them are grown commercially for spice.

Sri Lankan cinnamon with its sweet, mellow flavor and strong aroma is also known as True Cinnamon, as opposed to various other types of fake cinnamon products.

Cinnamon has many uses ranging from traditional food, western sweets, deserts, rice pudding, apple cake and jams. French toast and bread, Spanish sangria, Moroccan fish and lamb dishes, Asian perfumed rice, Indian curry pastes and masala, the legendary Chinese “mix of five spices”, and of course its variety of mixes with chocolate, coffee and tea.

Black Pepper

Black pepper is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. When dried, the fruit is known as a peppercorn. Once the peppercorns are dried, pepper spirit and oil can be extracted from the berries by crushing them.

Dried ground pepper has been used since antiquity for both its flavor and as a traditional medicine. Black pepper is the world’s most traded spice. Known as the “King of spices”, it occupies the largest percentage in the international spice trade.

It is one of the most common spices added to cuisines around the world. The spiciness of black pepper is due to the chemical piperine. Black pepper is ubiquitous in the modern world as a seasoning and is often paired with salt.

Pepper spirit is also used in many medicinal and beauty products, and Pepper oil is used as an ayurvedic massage oil and used in certain beauty and herbal treatments. Matale, Kandy, Kegalle, Kurunegala and Nuwara Eliya, are major areas of cultivation, within Sri lanka.

Clove is the dried unopened flower bud of the evergreen tree. It is not known how and when clove was introduced to Sri Lanka, but it may be that the Arabian traders or Colonial rulers brought the plant to the country, as Sri Lanka was a major trading hub for spices during those times.

Clove is largely used as ground or dried whole buds to provide flavor curry mixtures, flavoring foods, both sweet and savory, in pickling and the production of sauces and ketchup, as well as the pharmaceutical dentistry, and perfume industry.
