Cinnamon is a popular spice derived from the inner bark of the Cinnamon tree. It is produced in Sri Lanka, India, China, Vietnam, Brazil and Madagascar. The best variety of Cinnamon, with the best aroma, comes from Sri Lanka.

How Cinnamon is Made

Cinnamon is made from the peeled, rolled inner bark of the cinnamon tree. Shoots from the coppiced cinnamon tree are harvested. Then the tough inner bark is pried out in long shoots that rolls into tight quills as it dries. The meter-long rolls are cut into portions.

The wet rolls are dried in a well-ventilated and warm room, usually within 4 to 6 hours to prevent infestation by pests. After the rolls turn into quills, it is graded according to size and the finished product is packaged for sale.
