Cinnamon is one of the world's oldest and most popular spices; it is used in cuisines around the world and is the most important "sweet spice."
Cinnamon is the dried inner bark of various evergreen laurel trees in the cinnamomun family. At harvest, the bark is stripped off and put in the sun, where it curls into the familiar form called "quills." Cinnamon sticks are made from long pieces of bark that are rolled, pressed, and dried.
True Cinnamon, also called Ceylon Cinnamon, is native to Sri Lanka. It is a pale tan color and has an exceptionally mild flavor; very pleasant, but so delicate that it seems weak to the North American palate. The Cinnamon used in North America is from the cassia tree, specifically Korintje cassia, which is grown in Vietnam, China, Indonesia, and Central America.
Possibly the most common baking spice, Cinnamon is used in cakes, cookies, and desserts throughout the world. Cinnamon is also used in savory chicken and lamb dishes from the Middle East. In American cooking, Cinnamon is often paired with apples and used in other fruit and cereal dishes. Stick Cinnamon is used in pickling and for flavoring hot beverages.
Cinnamon has been popular since ancient times. Egyptians imported it from China in 2000 BC. Romans believed Cinnamon was sacred, and Nero burned a year's supply of the spice at the funeral for his wife. Because Cinnamon was one of the first spices sought in the 15th Century European explorations, some say it indirectly led to the discovery of America.

Nearly 16 million Americans have diabetes, and another 13 million have high blood sugar and are at risk of developing diabetes. Many require insulin or
medication to control blood sugar levels, but a recent finding shows that a simple spice may hold promise in the fight to control blood sugar. The Agricultural
Research Service at the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that cinnamon made the body's cells more responsive to insulin, which, in turn, helps to control
the level of sugar, or glucose, in the blood. Adding cinnamon to foods on a regular basis may prove to be the "spice of life" for many who are fighting with blood
Don't eat more sweets to get more cinnamon in your diet. Add it to the healthy foods you normally eat. Add to tea or coffee, sprinkle on toast, cereal, yogurt, ice cream.
