Cinnamon is a spice made from the dried inner bark of a tree that is native to Indian and Sri Lanka. Like other aromatic spices from Asia, cinnamon played a significant role in the spice trade and the expansion of global cultures, as well as the world map.

The warm, spicy-sweet flavor of cinnamon makes the spice a popular baking spice and beverage flavoring agent. The cut and sifted bark, or cinnamon “chips,” can be combined with fresh coffee grounds for an exotic morning brew. Similarly, cinnamon chips lend spice to hot or iced teas.

Background: Cinnamon has been used for thousands of years, and was highly sought and expensive in ancient times. The earliest recorded use was in ancient Egypt as part of the mixture for embalming. It is native to Sri Lanka and southwest India, explaining the historically high cost to ancient civilizations. The Dutch monopolized the Cinnamon trade, and claimed that cultivated spice was ineffectual. This was not challenged until 1776 when cultivation of Cinnamon was first attempted. Flavors of meat, vegetables and sweets have been enhanced with Cinnamon in countries throughout the eastern continents.

Description: Cinnamon is a tree reaching up to 30 feet in height with a heavy, rough-scaled bark. Hidden white flowers occur in panicles. The red lance-shaped leaves become green with maturity and smell of cinnamon with a hot, spicy taste. Camphor can be obtained upon distillation of the fruit, an acorn-like oval berry. The inner bark of young shoots is dried for commercial use. The trees prefer a rainforest-type environment with very sandy soils and little organic matter.

Safety: People with bleeding disorders are cautioned. No other information is available.
