Palm Sugar

A sweetener made from the sap that is found inside the flower buds of the coconut palm tree. It is used is south and south-east Asian cuisines.

To make palm sugar, the sap from the coconut palm tree is heated until thick syrup is formed. It can then be sold as syrup, or dried into cakes or formed into crystals.

Being unrefined, palm sugar retains many of its vitamin and minerals, making it a good substitute for white or brown sugar.
