Palm Sugar

Palm sugar (gula jawa) is sold as a solid block or cylinder of sugar made from the sap of the coconut or arenga sugar palm. It varies in color from gold to light brown and has a faint caramel taste. It is used to make Palm Sugar Syrup (page 104). To measure, hard palm sugar should be shaved, grated or melted in a microwave oven. Substitute dark brown sugar.
