India Tree Dark Muscovado Sugar, 1 lb (Pack of 4)
- India Tree Dark Muscovado Sugar from the African island of Mauritius has a fine, moist texture, a high molasses content
- The strong lingering flavor goes well with other rich flavors - as in gingerbread, coffee, chocolate cakes and fudge
- For a more robust flavor with your favorite recipes, use in place of dark brown sugar
- India Tree Dark Muscovado Sugar takes its flavor and color from the sugar cane juice from which it is made
- Sugar milled in Mauritius is particularly special because it retains much of the flavor of the cane grown on soil rich with volcanic ash

It's important to note that it is absolutely necessary to store it in a sealed plastic or glass container so it doesn't turn into a sugar boulder.
Bought this sugar on a whim thinking it MIGHT be good and it certainly looked like something a different than you'd ever find in a supermarket.
What a thrill it is. Granted, the packaging is plain, nothing at all fancy about it but what's inside is very fancy with a flavor so divine that it invites you to try it in everything.
Here are a few of the things I've used it for since it arrived in my kitchen.
Adds an elegant, gourmet flavor when used as a topping on french toast.
On hot cereals such as oatmeal, cream of wheat, cream of rice it tastes rich and the steam rising smells so good.
And here's a news flash: Mix a rounded teaspoon or two in hot or cold milk for a real treat. Or if you're like me and into making from scratch hot cocoa, instead of mixing granulated sugar into the cocoa powder mix about 1/2 as much Muscovado sugar for an out of this world cup of hot cocoa. The flavor is deep and heady with an aroma that will knock your socks off.
Want to add some pizazz to your beef stew? Add a half teaspoon of Muscovado to it about 1/2 hour before it's finished cooking.
It also will add great flavor to chili when you add teaspoon full to it near the end of it's cooking time.
Cut up a few apples, an orange and add a 1/2 cup or so of dried cranberries and a handful of crushed walnuts or pecans, sprinkle a rounded teaspoon of Muscovado sugar on top and give it a light toss. Let the mix sit in the fridge for an hour or so and you have a grand fresh dessert OR - and let me tell you this is so good you'll want to do it again....Read more ›
I really recommend it for spicy shortbread variations if you like to experiment in cooking. I use shortbread to try out sugars and sweeteners and to see how they combine with different flavors.
This makes a very dense shortbread with a nice molasses warm flavor.
We made chocolate chip cookies using entirely this sugar for both white and brown sugars. They were AMAZINGLY rich. Normally, we can get through a double batch in 2-3 days, but with this sugar, they were so amazingly rich, we couldn't eat more than 2 cookies at a time.
This is MUCH richer than most sugars, even other whole cane sugars. I am now cutting my recipes to about 3/4 the sugar I used to use.

Rich tasting, just a little added to beans or stews even makes them taste better. Oatmeal cookies are great when you add half and half with light brown sugar. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Susan P.
Unfortunately, it gave my pumpkin pie an almost bitter after taste...I guess it is the higher content of molasses. Gingersnap cookies would be improved by using this sugar!Published 2 months ago by Elaine in the southwest
