Demerara style sugar is an unrefined sugar with a large grain. It is made by pressing sugar cane and steaming the juice of the first pressing to form a thick cane syrup. This syrup is then dehydrated, leaving behind large brown crystals of sugar.
Demerara style sugar has a rich, creamy, molasses-like flavour that enhances baked goods. It is great for a variety of cooking and baking recipes, and is also a popular sweetener for tea and coffee.
