Dark Muscovado Sugar is a natural, unrefined sugar from the African Island nation of Mauritius. Sugar milled in Mauritius is highly valued by chefs and bakers because it retains much of the flavor of the cane grown in soil rich with volcanic ash. Long enjoyed in Europe, this sugar has only recently been made available in the United States.

Natural and unrefined, Dark Muscovado has a fine, moist texture, high molasses content, and strong lingering flavor that makes it a favorite of chefs and bakers. It goes well with other rich flavors: gingerbread, coffee, chocolate cakes and fudge. Use in recipes calling for dark brown sugar - it adds a whole new flavor dimension to baked goods.

Store in an airtight container. If sugar hardens, place it in a bowl and cover with a wet cloth until the sugar softens again.

For centuries, the word "India" referred to a fabled kingdom in the East known to the western world for its silk, porcelain, spices, sugar, and tea. These treasures traveled westward by caravan over the legendary Silk Road, then from Arabian ports to Europe by sea.

In actuality, "India" was not a single place or kingdom, but a composite of many countries and cultures as yet unknown to Western civilization.

The desire of Europeans to discover "India" gave birth to the Age of Exploration, followed by three centuries of expanding trade and colonization. It also gave birth to new nations. America grew strong and prosperous on trade with the East.

The never ending quest for the exotic has given rise to many legends. Inspired by such tales, INDIA TREE, under the leadership of Gretchen Goehrend, Founder and President, is creating a legend of its own by bringing together under the INDIA TREE label an extraordinary assortment of quality products from around the world.
