Angkor Food Thnot Sugar
Thnot is the Cambodian term for Borassus flabellifer, a type of palm tree that's integral to South and Southeast Asian cuisines—not just the sap and fruit but also the seeds and sprouts. Made by slow-cooking the trees' sap, Cambodian Thnot Sugar has light caramel and vanilla notes that remind us of toasted marshmallows. While it's often sold in a pressed brick, Angkor Food's version comes in a convenient granulated form; the large grains look coarse but melt fast on the tongue and incorporate readily into recipes, making Thnot Sugar a versatile unrefined alternative to white or cane sugar.

Just Panela Granulated Panela Sugar
Here at Milk Street we have rediscovered more flavorful pantry items including flours, vinegars, oils, and salts. At the top of our list, however, is sugar. This raw, unrefined sugar from Colombia packs a complex, earthy flavor that’s terrific in everything from tea, coffee and cocktails to oatmeal or grapefruit. The bittersweet flavor also does well in savory applications, like a pot of Mexican beans or tomato-based pasta sauces. It will become your sugar bowl standard.
Pure Indian Foods 1.1 Pounds Organic Jaggery
Organic jaggery is a raw, unprocessed Indian sugar produced from unfiltered sugarcane juice. We love this one from Pure Indian Foods for its deep, earthy flavor—reminiscent of maple and caramel—and its moist, almost creamy, yet crumbly texture. The family-owned company traces its roots to 1889 in northern India and sources pantry staples have a complexity and authenticity that just can’t be imitated. Use jaggery as an all-purpose sweetener; it pairs well with warm spices like cinnamon, allspice and cardamom or with anything coconut or citrus.
India Tree Dark Muscovado Sugar
Conventional brown sugar is simply white, refined sugar moistened with molasses. On the other hand, raw muscovado sugar has a rich, earthy and almost smoky flavor, as well as a high molasses content. India Tree’s moist-textured variety, processed in Mauritius, can be substituted for dark brown sugar in any recipe (we tested this) or used to add extra flavor to coffee, tea or cocktails (perfect in an Old Fashioned).
