Cinnamon was once more valuable than gold. In Egypt it was sought for embalming and witchcraft. In medieval Europe it was used for religious rites and as a flavoring. Later it was the most-profitable spice in the Dutch East India Company trade. In modern times cinnamon is used to flavor a variety of foods and drinks; in Europe and the it is especially popular in bakery goods.
