Video: How cinnamon is harvested

In this quick short, Foodie explores how Cassia (synonymous with cinnamon in the States) is harvested to make cinnamon. It's an interesting and decidedly old school process, the bark of the trees are cut and peeled off and then scraped and dried (where the bark curls up). Big pieces become powder, narrower pieces become cinnamon sticks.

Wow! I never knew that the cinnamon bark looks almost the same like the bark of a birch tree. Now I have the urge for a cinnamon roll!
