    Cinnamon is the dried bark of various laurel trees in the cinnamomun family. One of the more common trees from which Cinnamon is derived is the cassia. Ground cinnamon is perhaps the most common baking spice. Ground cinnamon is ground from long pieces of bark that are rolled, pressed, and dried.

The process takes up to six months.
