image CINNAMON is a spice:

It is a spice available throughout the year. However, this fragrant, sweet taste is a perfect spice to use during the winter months.

Cinnamon can also be used as a medicine. It is the brown bark of the cinnamon tree. It is available in its dried tubular form. It can also be purchased as a ground powder.

There are two varieties of cinnamon: Chinese and Ceylon. They both have similar flavor, but the cinnamon from Ceylon is slightly sweeter and more refined than that of Chinese.
