5Cinnamon – Price: $6/pound

We start our top 5 list of the costliest spices in the world with cinnamon.

This spice is obtained from the inner bark of a couple of trees from Cinnamomum, genus of evergreen aromatic trees and shrubs belonging to the laurel family Lauraceae.

Cinnamon is a native to Sri Lanka and is also grown in India and Indonesia. In Mexico, it is used in the making of chocolate.

True cinnamon is known as Cinnamomum verum. In ancient times, cinnamon was used to cure the common cold, freckles, snakebites or kidney troubles.

Also, it’s used as a condiment. You can add cinnamon to desserts too, such as doughnuts, cinnamon buns, apple pie or in drinks like coffee, tea, wine, hot cocoa, liqueurs and the list can continue.

A pound of cinnamon costs $6.
