Default locating jaggery sugar

Anyone know where to get jaggery sugar. I am tweaking a recipe from Radical Brewing and it calls for jaggery sugar, but it is now where to be found locally around me. Is there website that has it?

I did the Running Dog IPA from that book and it called for Demerra sugar I just used unrefined brown sugar from the local whole foods co-op and it seemed to work fine.

All it is is a form of unrefined cane sugar. So, check your local "health" food store. Sugar-in-the-raw and Turbino are two brand names you are likely to find in the US.

Jaggery is palm sugar, not cane sugar, but fairly similar to raw / turbinado / demerra sugar. A little different taste, but similar. If you have an Indian or Asian grocery store, check there. I have several big Asian markets around here, and it goes for $1-1.50/lb. Comes in a big disc or bag of small golf-ball size mini lumps.

The Three Nipple Tripel recipe. In a later chapter, he talks about fruit in beers. And one of the recommendations is a Mango Tripel. I was thinking of doing this, but maybe adding a couple of different fruits to make a tropical tripel. I am still tweaking the recipe. yeah that book is really good, I loosely based my Mint Chocolate stout recipe off his in the book and it came out awesome!

The only indian market in town closed. There is an asian market, I didn't think they would carry it but I will check. Thanks for the tip!!

I did try the local health food store and they have turbinado, date sugar and beet sugar. I thought Turbinado was different from jaggery. Are they similar enough? I am going to try the asian market, but if they don't have it I need an alternative...

Lots of Indian recipes call for Jaggery... one of my favorites one of my coworkers taught me us adu pak. Basically jaggery, butter, coconut, and ginger fried together then cooled. It makes this DELICIOUS dessert!

There is a palm sugar sold under the brand name of Jaggery, but jaggery sugar sold in India and southeast Asia is cane sugar, almost without exception.

Lots of health food stores sell sucanat---it's pure unrefined dried cane juice, even purer than turbinado. It retains its molasses content, making it very flavorful (coffee-like). It also has a smaller proportion of sucrose, which is nice for brewing. I use it in a lot of my brews.

Quote:
Sucanat (a contraction of "Sugar Cane Natural") is non-refined cane sugar.[1] Unlike refined and processed white sugar, Sucanat retains its molasses content; it is essentially pure dried sugar cane juice. The juice is extracted by mechanical processes, heated and cooled at which point the small brown grainy crystals are formed.

Sucanat is generally accepted as a substitute for brown sugar.[citation needed] Unlike regular brown sugar, sucanat is grainy instead of crystalline. Of all major sugars derived from sugar cane, Sucanat (not a "processed" sugar[2]) ranks the highest in nutritional value, containing a smaller proportion of sucrose than white cane sugar.[3] However, Sucanat (in common with all sugars) is not a significant source of any nutrient apart from carbohydrate.

Sucanat may be confused with Turbinado sugar; however, the two are fundamentally different. Turbinado sugar contains only a trace amount of its original molasses content, making it more or less like refined sugar except with a golden color and a hint of molasses flavor. Sucanat, on the other hand, retains its full molasses content and flavor, thus making it, as stated above, pure dried cane juice. Its grainy form also contrasts with the clear, crystalline form of Turbinado.
If you can't find jaggery, I highly recommend sucanat.

Default To find jaggery sugar

Here, sugar is sugar...but once you smell jaggery, you'll understand...

www.ishopindian.com

That's where I buy my jaggery...and saffron, and white coriander, and...well, lotsa stuff. The jaggery tripel is delicious, btw.

Enjoy!
