This cane sugar is made by pressing sugarcane to release the naturally sweet juice and then cooking it slightly before allowing it to dry. During the cooking process, various ingredients are added to help remove impurities which may be present in the sugarcane juice; typically these impurities rise to the top in the form of foam which is skimmed out. Both coconut milk and lime juice are used in traditionally processing of Muscovado sugar; these refining ingredients do not usually leave flavors behind. After Muscovado sugar is dried, it is broken apart and sold.
