What Are Aromatic Finishing Sugars?
The New Old Way to Use Sugar...
Our Aromatic Finishing Sugars are botanically infused and made with fair trade, organic, cane sugar containing naturally occurring trace minerals, not to be confused with highly refined or artificial sweeteners, which unfortunately give pure, unrefined cane sugar a bad rap.
We source organic evaporated cane juice crystals made from 100% certified organic sugar cane grown on sustainable farms in the Americas. It is a "first crystallization" sugar, which means the cane is harvested, the juice is extracted, then any field impurities are removed, and it is crystallized all within 24 hours of the cane's harvest. This process creates perfect sugar crystals rich in flavor and earthy molasses notes, and because it is far less processed than traditional table sugar, it retains a slight blonde color and a delicious natural taste. We then carefully infuse the finest Botanicals and Culinary Essential Oils into the cane sugar.
Real Sugar Cane, Saccharum officinarum, is a member of the grass family (Poaceae), and comes directly from the plant itself (unlike high fructose corn syrup and refined white sugar). The reason sugar has caused such a negative impact on health is because conventional producers now use outrageous amounts in their highly refined foods and beverages to keep us hooked. This is why we advocate using it smartly and in small amounts.
There once was a time when sugar was considered a spice, and Terre Botanicals reflects this sentiment by advocating for what we call “the new old way to use sugar.” Our Aromatic Finishing Sugars are meant to be used in smaller doses to naturally elevate the flavors of the foods and beverages we all love. Help us promote a healthier relationship with sugar and its use as “Mother Nature’s Complement” rather than a staple food.
Simply replace the table sugar called for in your favorite recipes, use it as a finishing sugar, to make preserves, rim a glass, make simple syrups, or use it in hot or cold beverages. For a botanical twist, add it to lemonade, sparkling water, ice cubes, or your favorite spirits! Imagine these infused aromatics softly dusted over fresh fruit or baked in a seasonal tart. Embellish crème brûlée, ice cream, sorbet or yogurt. Think of the subtle touch added to breakfast breads and heirloom grains.
Our Aromatic Finishing Sugars will also compliment your favorite savory dishes, as well. Try them in marinades, vinaigrettes, pestos, and barbecue or spaghetti sauces. Embellish cheese courses, nuts, olives, and charcuterie, or even make flavored butters.
