Coconut Almond Ding


One of the things I ended up buying to fill up the honey box was a container of coconut sugar. Which I’d never seen before, but for some reason sounded intriguing. Seemed like a good idea at the time, as the saying goes.

Then I got it home and have been wondering what to do with it. To clarify, it’s not sugar from coconuts (I’m not sure if that’s even possible), but cane sugar, flavored with natural coconut pieces. It’s a bit subtle, maybe it gets more coconutty with age. The label says it is, “Perfect to add a delicious additional flavor to your coffee, tea or whatever.”

Had an “OH!” moment the other day about something to use it in – Almond Ding! So I replaced the regular sugar with Coconut Sugar. Since it gets caramelized that ends up being the main flavor. Even knowing I’d used Coconut Sugar I’m not sure I could taste any coconut flavor. Perhaps I’ll have to do a regular batch and a coconut batch to compare directly and see if there is a difference.
