Palm sugar

Palm sugar is formed by taking the sap from the flowering stalks of a palm tree and boiling it down. Sold in hardened blocks, tubes and cans and widely used in Thai cooking to sweeten savoury dishes, palm sugar should ideally be crumbly and not fully crystallised.


Use molasses sugar if you can’t find palm sugar. It’s much sweeter though, so sweeten to taste!
