SKU: Storecupboard24 Categories: , ,
DETAILS Light Muscovado sugar is natural, unrefined cane sugar that contains natural molasses – but less than Dark Muscovado. It has a rich brown colour and moist texture.  It can be used in a whole host of recipes to sweeten them, from carrot cake to blondies!
STORAGE ADVICE Light Muscovado Sugar should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. It is important to keep it away from moisture and heat to prevent clumping and maintain its soft, granular texture. Using a sealed container helps to preserve the sugar’s moisture content and prevents it from drying out. Additionally, it’s a good idea to store it away from strong odors, as sugars can absorb and take on the flavors of nearby substances. By following these storage recommendations, you can ensure that your Light Muscovado Sugar remains fresh and ready to use in your culinary endeavors.
