"Demerara" refers to the place in Guyana where this type of large-crystalled sugar first originated many years ago. This all-natural Demerara Sugar is a crunchy, golden brown sugar with a sticky texture and rich aroma. Its large, sparkling champagne-colored crystals make it a terrific, crunchy topping on cookies, cakes, and desserts. It is also fantastic on grilled fruit, sprinkled on melons, and especially good in iced tea. In England, Demerara sugar is the traditional sweetener for coffee.
