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.
Most of the world's cinnamon is produced in Indonesia. This video shows the process from the jungles of Sumatra, Indonesia.
