Cinnamon: The Aromatic Ancient

More than just a pantry staple, cinnamon has journeyed through millennia, prized by pharaohs, traded by merchants, and even mentioned in religious texts. Its aromatic allure and medicinal properties have made it a favorite from ancient Egypt to modern kitchens.

Unraveling the Cinnamon Stick

The cinnamon we adore comes from the inner bark of trees belonging to the genus Cinnamomum. While there are multiple types, the most recognized are:

  1. Ceylon Cinnamon: Often referred to as “true cinnamon,” it’s delicate and sweet.
  2. Cassia Cinnamon: More commonly found in supermarkets, it’s robust and spicy. Also known as Saigon Cinnamon.
