Cinnamon, a staple ingredient in apple pie, has remained one of the world’s favorite spices throughout recorded history. The evergreen cinnamon tree (Cinnamomum verum), considered to be true cinnamon, is native to Sri Lanka. Chinese cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia or Cinnamomum aromaticum), the cinnamon most commonly sold in the U.S., goes by the name “Cassia.” Usage of cinnamon in Chinese medicine is said to date back over 4,000 years. Mentioned in the Bible, cinnamon was imported to Egypt and Europe from the Far East by 500 B.C. True cinnamon and cassia are very similar; cassia has a more pungent flavor. Cassia buds can be found in potpourri and used as a flavoring agent in sweets and beverages.
