How to Cook with Palm Sugar?

Its wonderfully caramelized flavor is truly addictive. It is, of course, great for desserts, but also works well in savory dishes where it can mellow the heat of chili peppers and bind ingredients together.

Try this Cambodian sugar in a mango smoothie. It’s a typical refreshing drink from Cambodia. Blend together 1 mango, the juice of 1 lime, 1 tablespoon of palm sugar, and some water. Enjoy it a little, a lot, passionately, or madly...

The Aromas of Palm Sugar

The nose of this sugar is dominated by smoky aromas of mocha and coffee bean that evolve into more roasted scents as it aerates. Its delicate and airy flavor reveals slightly salty taste notes reminiscent of salted butter caramel.

A Palm Native to Cambodia

The thnot, or sugar palm in Khmer, is a symbol of Khmer spirit. It is almost exclusively cultivated in Cambodia, and its sugar is produced by cooperatives of farmers. These farmers climb the trees to reach the palm flowers. They make incisions in the flowers and shake them to collect the sap in pots made from bamboo stems. The sap is then boiled to evaporate the water and turn into sugar. This is a traditional craft.
