The Spice House: Let’s Learn About Cinnamon With The Spice Boss!

The Spice House (1512 N. Wells) is one of Old Town’s marquee specialty shops. With jars, baskets and bottles filled to overflowing with traditional spices and unique mixes, the aromas are almost dizzying when you walk in for the first time.
In this video, the Spice Boss takes you on a tour of The Spice House grinding room, and talks about fresh Saigon Cinnamon. The Spice House’s “Saigon” cassia cinnamon, from Vietnam, is much stronger than the others, with a sweet spicy heat like red-hot candies. It’s so popular they grind about a hundred pounds each week, just to keep up with the demand! More Spice Boss videos are available on The Spice House’s YouTube channel.
