Cinnamon

Look what I read on the back of my Kashi Cinnamon Harvest cereal box:

Cinnamon was once more precious than gold. Its been used as perfume, incense, antibacterial and stimulant.  It’s also been a token of friendship. It originated in Sri Lanka and is harvested from the evergreen-like trees of the Laurel family. The bark is scraped off during rainy season and when left to dry, it curls into cinnamon sticks.

This is all news to me!  I’ve always loved cinnamon but now I have a new respect for it!
