Coconut Sugar

According to the friendly chaps at my local Chinese supermarket, this is Coconut Sugar.

It costs $3.50 for four decent-sized blocks. It’s low GI. It does not cost $25 like the expensive granulated hippy brands from the organics shop.

Grr – $25 for sugar.

It’s yummy, it tastes like brown sugar. I enjoy it in hot drinks. I bake with it. It’s as sweet as sugar and I use a 1:1 ratio. I grate it so it’s easy to put in drinks.
