What a great insight! Now the critical question - can you recommend places where people can purchase the real brown sugar, i.e. Muscavado ?

Moe Rubenzahl

Good question, Stacey. I edited the posting to include where I got it. I got it at Cosentino's, a grocery store in the South Bay. I am going to guess you can find it at better stores, such as Andronico's, Draeger's, or at stores that carry international items. Whole Foods is likely.

A friend commented on the Facebook posting that he mixes his own. That's a great idea. "1.5 tsp molasses per cup of white sugar for light, 3 tsp per cup for dark."

By the way, this stuff is so good that I'll confess to eating some of it out of the jar I keep it in. Not like eating sugar at all.


Hmmm....must be good since you never mentioned to me that you got it! But now I know - you're a sugar hoarder!


You can also get it at Amazon.com (naturally)

I bet this would be divine when baking toffee cookies or spice cakes. Mmm. Think this calls for a drive to Cosentino's.


I've never tried the muscovado, but now you've intrigued me. I've got to try it out and see just how much of a difference it makes.

It's kinda crazy that it has to come from far off the coast of Africa.
