Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Coconut Palm Sugar
Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is a rich, unrefined brown sugar with a deep caramel flavor. It is produced by tapping the nectar from the tropical coconut palm tree flower and drying the nutrient rich juice in a large open kettle drum. The juice condenses into a delicious, hand-made whole brown sugar that adds natural color and a depth of flavor to baking.
Wholesome Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is hand made by small farmer cooperatives on the island of Java in Indonesia. Cooperative farmers climb high into the Coconut Palm trees to tap the coconut tree flower for its sweet nectar, similar to tapping a maple tree for syrup.
The sweet nectar is then cooked in large open kettle drums to evaporate the liquid. As the liquid evaporates and the thick syrup is stirred vigorously, by hand, a beautiful granular sugar begins to appear.
Use 1 for 1 in place of conventional brown sugar. Because this comes from the sap of the coconut flower and not the coconut fruit, coconut palm sugar doesn't taste like coconut, but has a rich, caramel flavor.
