Coconut Blossom Sugar
Coconut blossom sugar is a sugar produced from the sap of cut flower buds of the coconut palm. It has been used as a traditional sweetener for thousands of years in the South-Eastern Asian regions. Farmers climb the coconut palms and collect the sugar blossom nectar or sap (toddy) by gently slicing the stamp of the flower. Once harvested the nectar is transferred into kettles and boiled. The kettle-boiling process lowers the moisture content of the nectar/sap, which enables solidification. Once cooled, the crystallized brick is then granulated.
