Like You Would Think

Our next stop was a cinnamon factory and just like you would expect there were rolls of cinnamon tree bark. Of course they were in a larger stage than what we get in those little boxes on the grocery shelves.

Standing by a huge pile of cinnamon leaves we learned first hand that they smell just like you would think. Cinnamon.

What was amazing was the amount of leaves that must go through the distilling process to get just one gallon of cinnamon oil...

And that cinnamon leaves have bumps.
