Cinnamon has a long history. It can be found mentioned several times in the Old Testament of the Bible. For example Moses was commanded to use both sweet and cassia cinnamon for making the anointing oil. It was also used by the Egyptians.
Highly prized, it was thought to be a gift fit for kings and gods. It was very expensive! The average person couldn’t afford it, and in some places 300 g of it could cost as much as 10 months wages.
Most people didn’t know where cinnamon came from, and those that did guarded the secret. There were many stories made up about it’s origins. So it wasn’t until about the year 1270, when the origin of cinnamon was written in “Monument of Places and History of God’s Bondsmen”, that people, other than the spice traders, began to know where cinnamon came from.
