Story, Folklore, History
Cinnamon is the brownish-reddish inner bark of the cinnamon tree, which when dried, rolls into a tubular form known as a quill. Cinnamon is available in either its whole quill form (cinnamon sticks) or as ground powder. All types of cinnamon belong to the same family of plants, called the Lauraceae family. Cinnamon is indigenous to Sri Lanka and South India. It is one of the oldest of all spices and is mentioned in the Bible and in Sanskrit texts.
