One of my clinic staff brought an organic brown sugar from Indonesia, she said it’s from coconut. I think it is called “Organic Coconut Palm sugar. the moment she handed it to me, I thought about hmmm… Cheesecake.. of course! when sugar melts and heavy cream was added, the outcome was a deep flavoured caramel.
