Cassia Buds

A rare spice that looks like cloves and has a mild, flowery cinnamon flavour. Dry Cassia Buds are the unopened flower of the cassia or cinnamon tree that are harvested before blooming and left to dry in the sun. Traditionally used in watermelon rind pickles, chutneys, and to flavour tea. It's excellent in Asian soya-based marinades for pork or beef short ribs, or in spicy Indian curries and can be used in baking in place of cinnamon.
