~Dutch Ginger Slice~

~Dutch Ginger Slice~
Oh how I love this beautiful slice!!!

Organic Crystalized Ginger

Rapadura Sugar

Rapadura sugar – is an unrefined sugar, made from minimally processed organic sugar cane. After the cane is harvested it is pressed to squeeze out the cane juice, which is then clarified, filtered and evaporated to remove excess water. The resulting syrup is then crystallized, and is rich with molasses flavour and the vitamins, minerals and trace elements that are naturally found in the molasses of the sugar cane plant, as it is not separated from the nutrient dense molasses part of the sugar cane. It is a high quality whole sweetener. It has a low /medium sweetening power with a marked molasses flavour. Simply substitute 1 cup of rapadura for 1 cup of other sugars.
