Expensive? Yes

Effective? Yes?

Worthwhile? As always it depends if you're flush grab some if not don't worry-you might notice a difference but most people won't.

In the coming months I'll be visiting a number of different Asian groceries and will try to source something cheaper-best prices I've found so far have been from London Drugs believe it or not.

I used to buy the pucks to grate for curries, but didn't really feel like it was necessary. Coconut sugar has much the same depth and flavour, so I use that. I buy it granulated in bags.

It's good, its not that expensive here, but I agree if its not an option it can be worked around.

Palm sugar is a bit less good than jaggery, which is the brownest of all the brown sugars. Hon. mention: date sugar.

But I too tend to reach for the coconut sugar. Brown sugar or Sugar In The Raw gets you in the ballpark too.

In third world-land, they're just throwing in whatever they have at hand. If they could get their hands on Karo syrup, they would.

I like fruit (pineapple, dates, coconut etc). Yes, it's the same sugar but it also add other flavours and texture.

I'm pretty sure I have seen Palm Sugar in our local grocery stores. Which means it couldn't be that expensive. Next time I shop I will have to look.

Can't you get that? No diff imo. Just a bit more tricky trying to shave lumps off it with a v. sharp knife that might slip and slit your hand open is all?
