A warm, honey-colored, large-crystal sugar with a coarse, crunchy texture. It's prized for its smooth melting qualities - this is the sugar of choice for the top of your crème brulees. It melts to a perfectly smooth sheet that shatters beautifully with a light tap. With a gently deeper flavor than fully refined sugar, turbinado is also delicious for sweetening coffee or tea sweetener.
Fine Cooking magazine says: "It's our favorite sugar for adding sparkle and crunch to the outside of baked goods like cookies or the rustic fruit tarts called galettes. We also like to sprinkle it over grilled fruit." Mmmm.
