Cinnamon

Did you Know:

  • Cinnamon is one of the world’s oldest known spices, dating back to about 2800 B.C., when it was mentioned in a Chinese botanical text.
  • Cinnamon is obtained from the inner bark of several trees from the genus Cinnamomum. The trees are grown for two years, and then cut down (coppiced) so that they grow many branches from the roots that can then be harvested.
