Strawberry and Crème Fraîche Parfait With Rapadura Sugar
Rapadura is an unrefined sugar, characterized for its beautiful golden brown color. Made from organically grown sugar cane, rapadura is precious for its unique caramel flavor. It is a typical product used in many Latin American countries such as Brasil, Colombia, Venezuela, and Ecuador. In our country, street vendors offer rapadura sugar wrapped in corn husks and it usually comes in a solid circular flat shape, but you can also find it in cubic shapes in local markets. In Honduran gastronomy, rapadura is widely used for preparing desserts, and perfectly replaces refined white sugar in any recipe: simply substitute 1 cup of rapadura for 1 cup white sugar.
