Our Candy Sugar, (or sweet diamonds as it is popularly called) is a sparking-white big crystal sugar obtained by cooling supersaturated sugar solutions. Its large crystals boast of purity and are also very attractive. This good-looking sweetener for tea or coffee sits pretty on a table setting. It is also popular among makers of homemade fruit liqueurs. Loved by both kids & grown ups, this pure unadulterated candy makes a good substitute for dessert after meals.
Candy Sugar has its origins in India and Persia. Arabic writers in the first half of the 9th Century described the production of candy sugar. Crystals were grown as a result of cooling supersaturated sugar solutions. In order to accelerate crystallization, confectioners later learnt to immerse small twigs in the solution for the crystals to grow on. The sugar solution was colored with cochineal and indigo and scented with ambergris or flower essence.
