Where does Christmas sugar come from?
The sugar in this recipe comes from La Reunion
Sugar cane was first brought to La Reunion in 1663, and at the time was used by the settlers to make alcohol. Exports of sugar cane is the 2nd largest source of income for La Reunion, tourism being the main source. Whether sugar cane is used for brown sugar, white sugar or for making rum, it is one of the islands greatest treasures!
Sugar cane is produced traditionally in La Reunion. Large rollers are used to crush the sugar cane to extract its natural juice. The juice is then strained and boiled so that the water evaporates. Once the large vats of sugar cane have cooled they are spun in a centrifuge to help the sugar crystals form. Then your sugar is ready to be shipped to you!
