Cinnamon is a sweet and spicy, almost peppery, spice that is actually the bark of a tree. You can buy cinnamon in magnificent looking quills that can be added whole, or broken, to lovely drinks in the winter, or you can buy it ground. There are two types of cinnamon, Chinese and Ceylon, with nuances in the flavors and slightly different nutritional qualities.

There is much debate that only the Ceylon is true cinnamon whereas the Chinese is an imitation made from a related plant but not the tree. This is true; however, unless you plan to really get in to using cinnamon as an artisan baker, the imitation or whatever kind you can find in your grocery store, of cinnamon, will probably meet the needs of your baking. It is always fun to test taste the difference, and the Chinese is often only available as a quill (rolled bark). The flavor is also substantially softer and more subtle than what you get in the grocer. In any event, cinnamon is a great spice that is popular the world over.
