How To Sweeten Boiled Custard - Rapadura vs Sucanat
Best Ever Boiled Custard can be sweetened with honey, Rapadura, Sucanat or raw sugar – all four options are given in the recipe below. What is the difference?Rapadura, is a whole food varying in color from batch to batch. The molasses is not separated out of Rapadura, it is not heated to high temperatures and therefore retains its vitamins and minerals. However, Rapadura is expensive. So, in an effort to balance health and budget, I choose Sucanat.Sucanat is heated to higher temperatures, the molasses is separated but then re-blended to make a consistent product. Sucanat also adds a delicious hint of molasses. If you are on a budget, Sucanat may be an alternative for those times when you want a healthier dessert!
