Let's face it - the last time you tried Cinnamon, it was probably on a pastry of some kind. Blended intoxicatingly with apple or raisins to create a wholesome yet indulgent breakfast snack. What you probably didn't realise is that hidden beneath the stodge and calories of that morning pastry is a spice with remarkable healing properties.
Known more prominently as Cassia, Chinese cinnamon has been around since at least 2000 BC when it was used by the ancient Egyptians for embalming their dead.
The Cinnamon we know (cassia) is actually made from the bark of the tree. The bark is cut away and then rolled as it dries into the cylindrical scroll shapes that we most commonly recognise. Because it is very hard and brittle, it is often sold in chips from those rolls - not exactly convenient for those of us who want a quick measure in the morning. Equally frustrating is that once it has been ground into a powder it spoils very quickly.
