How cinnamon became so popularCinnamon is an ancient spice that has been around and in use for thousands of years. Around 2000 BC cinnamon was a highly valuable commodity in the Middle East. The spice was used as a perfume and a common ingredient for embalmment. It eventually was brought to Europe by the Arab people, where it became as popular there as it had been in the Middle East. The traders kept the location of the spice a secret so they could continue to make money off the spice without competition. The route to Europe was difficult, making cinnamon expensive and a status symbol among Europeans. Eventually, the spice was found elsewhere by Portuguese explorers who had control of the market for a while before cinnamon started losing its high value because it was being found and harvested in so many other areas of the world.
Organic Ground Vietnamese Cinnamon, Cinnamomum loureiroi, is called \"que\" in Vietnamese. This is pronounced \"kway,\" for those of us who don't speak Vietnamese fluently. This cinnamon is the most aromatic of the different types available.
Vietnamese cinnamon is called \"alqurfat alfiatnamia\" in Arabic, \"yuenan rougui\" in Mandarin, \"cannelle vietnamienne\" in French, \"vietnamesischer Zimt\" in German, \"shatal daalacheenee\" in Hindi, \"Betonamushinamon\" in Japanese, \"canela vietnamita\" in Portuguese, \"v'yetnamskaya koritsa\" in Russian, and \"canela vietnamita\" in Spanish. It is also called Saigon cinnamon.
Cinnamon is one of the oldest known spices in the world. Historically, spices were extremely rare because of their location in far away lands. Usually, only the wealthy could afford to import and purchase spices. Everyone else was forced to use whatever herbs and spices were indigenous to their area. Cinnamon was no different, acting as a status symbol for many wealthy consumers. There is evidence of some cinnamon trading being conducted between China and Egypt all the way back in 2000 BCE. Egyptians would use cinnamon in the embalming process. This spice was used as part of funeral rites in ancient Rome as well, including the funeral of Emperor Nero's wife in 65 AD. He is said to have burned a supply of cinnamon that would have lasted Rome an entire year when she was being buried. Funny thing to do after you bury the wife you murdered, but to each their own.
In the middle ages, cinnamon was used as a medicine. It treated coughs, sore throats, and general feelings of being under the weather. During this period, cinnamon was also used alongside black pepper in the preservation of foodstuffs, meat especially. It was also used by Europeans as an ingredient in love potions.
During the Vietnam war, exports of Saigon cinnamon halted in the 60s. It wasn't until 1994 that the trade embargo placed on this cinnamon was lifted, and exports started up again. Over the last few years, the popularity of Vietnamese cinnamon has been on the rise in the United States.
Vietnamese cinnamon is indigenous to Northern Vietnam and comes from the inner bark of an evergreen cassia tree. It is mostly grown in the Qung Ngai Province (pronounced koo ong guy). Despite the name \"Saigon cinnamon\" it does not actually grow in Saigon.
Most Vietnamese cinnamon is cultivated from seedlings and grown on small farms. The highest quality cinnamon comes from the bark of trees that are at least 15 years old but begins to decline in quality in trees that are over 25. Cinnamon trees prefer slightly dry soil and full sun exposure. Cinnamon trees do best in soil that is acidic, with a pH of 4.5 to 5.5 being the ideal for the trees to produce the best cinnamon.
To harvest cinnamon, farmers will cut down trees and remove the inner bark from both the trunk and the branches of the tree. The highest quality cinnamon is that which is gathered from the part of the trunk that is closest to the ground. The quality of the bark decreases the higher up you get from the base of the tree, with the lowest quality cinnamon being found in the branches. The bark of the tree also grows thinner the higher up you go. 59ce067264
