Cinnamon has been used by humans for thousands of years. As early as 2000 B.C. the Egyptians used the related spice cassia, as a perfuming agent during the embalming prosess. Evidence suggests it was used throughout the ancient world, and that Arab traders brought it to Europe, where it proved equally popular. Today, we typically encounter two types of commercial cinnamon: Ceylon and Cassia cinnamon. Cassia cinnamon is primarily produced in Indonesia and has the stronger smell and flavor of the two varieties. This cheaper variety is what we usually buy in grocery stores to sprinkle on our apple pies or oatmeal. The more expensive Ceylon cinnamon, most of which is still produced in Sri Lanka, has a milder, sweeter flavor popular for both baking and flavoring hot drinks such as tea, coffee or hot chocolate.
