How To Enjoy Palm Sugar's Taste
I use tapped palm sugar in robust flavored beverages like dark roasted coffee and Moroccan mint tea. I like the aromatic flavor with its exotic, syrupy aftertaste as a change of pace from white cane sugar.
This is very unlike some controversial sweeteners produced under virtually pharmaceutical manufacturing conditions, and which seem to taste bitter and sickeningly sweet to me.

How Coconut Palm Sugar is Produced
Palm trees produce sugary syrup in two ways--
- One, sap exuded by coconut flower blossoms is tapped for coconut sugar;
- Two, from a tap placed directly in the tree trunk, just like a maple tree tap, to collect palm syrup.
