Muscovado sugar is unrefined cane sugar that contains natural molasses. It has a rich brown color, moist texture, and toffee-like taste.
It’s commonly used to give confections like cookies, cakes, and candies a deeper flavor but can also be added to savory dishes.
Often considered an artisanal sugar, muscovado sugar is made with more labor-intensive methods than commercial white or brown sugar.
Also known as Barbados sugar, sugar is an unrefined cane sugar in which the molasses has not been removed.
- It is very dark brown and has a particularly strong molasses flavor.
- The crystals are slightly coarser and stickier than regular brown sugar, giving this sugar a sandy texture.
