OTTAWA’S PREMIER SPICE SHOP

If you’ve ever gone in search of lava salt, ajowan or chili threads in Ottawa, you know fresh, high-quality herbs and spices can be hard to find. Friendly, expert advice can be just as scarce, since most grocers know relatively little about herbs and spices.

At Cardamom & Cloves, we aim to change all that. We’re Ottawa’s premier spice shop. We source a wide selection of bulk and pre-packaged products from around the world (and our own region). We also grow a variety of fresh herbs in store

But we don’t just stock herbs and spices — we know a lot about them, their rich history, deep cultural significance, and range of applications. It’s knowledge we love to share, and one of the secrets to our outstanding customer service.

THIS MONTH’S FEATURED SPICE: CINNAMON

 

CINNAMON: Cinnamon is the name of the spice that comes from the inner bark of about a dozen varieties of trees. Historically there are 4 varieties of cinnamon: True, Cassia, Malabathrum, and Serichatum Cinnamon. True is prized for it's papery texture that is easily blended into a fine powder, Cassia is the most common variety of cinnamon and malabathrum and serichatum have a flavour that cannot be beat! Great in savoury and sweet dishes, the warm and fragrant sweet taste of cinnamon has long been used as a spice but also as a medicine as it is used for anti-clotting, blood sugar control and improved brain function.
