Today is an exciting day. It is my first giveaway! A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a representative from Zulka. They were offering a bag of their Morena Pure Cane Sugar to sample. Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar is made from freshly harvested sugar cane. It is minimally processed and non-GMO (not made from genetically altered ingredients). It can be equally substituted (cup for cup) in cooking to granulated sugar. Since it is not refined, the pure cane sugar is a little more coarse and has a bit of a sparkle compared to conventional refined sugars. It is still lighter and not as coarse as turbinado sugar. I try to use the most natural ingredients whenever possible and am really excited to learn about this product. Click here to find a store that stocks Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar near you.
I searched for a recipe to showcase the flavor of the sugar. What better than a dessert where you get to use a blowtorch? Green Tea Creme Brulee (抹茶クレームブリュレ-Matcha kurēmuburyure) is an amazing use of fusion- a French dessert with Japanese flavor. I have used turbinado sugar in the past to top creme brulee, but the pure cane sugar worked beautifully. Since it is not refined, I was able to get the full depth of the caramel flavor. I bumped up the matcha powder by a 1/2 tablespoon for more green tea flavor. If you want the flavor more subtle, only add 1 tablespoon.
I have been able to find matcha at the local Asian food markets. It is also available on Amazon: DoMatcha DoMatcha Organic 2nd Harvest Matcha, 2.82-Ounce and less expensive: SerendipiTea Matcha Culinary Grade, Organic Green Tea, 4-Ounce Box. Make sure to use a culinary grade matcha.
