Parfait pour le café

Rend le café meilleur avec un petit goût de caramel

Enfin la sauce au poivre vert dispo en France!

Cette sauce est tellement bonne avec tout! Je l'avais goutée au Cambodge il y a des années et je suis très contente qu'elle soit enfin disponible en France.

LE Sucre de palme par excellence

Je connais ce sucre de palme de Confirel depuis très longtemps. Je recommande les yeux fermés pour sa qualité et authenticité.
Une gourmandise dans les yaourts, salade de fruits ou crêpes. Je fais mes pâtisseries uniquement avec ce sucre.

Un délice

Sucre au goût unique. Délicieux sur des yaourts, des crêpes...
Texture très agréable. Emballage soigné et hermétique. A acheter sans aucune hésitation, et à offrir aux curieux.

Belle surprise !

J'ai acheté ce sucre pour mes parents qui ont toujours pris soin de leur santé, ils ont adoré! Ma mère voulait essayer ce sucre car une amie lui en avait parlé mais impossible d'en trouver en magasins/épiceries...
J'ai donc fait une petite recherche sur internet (bye bye Amazon) et je suis tombé naturellement sur Confirel.
Le concept m'a plu du coup j'ai commandé chez eux et hop!

The sugar palm: the symbol of Cambodia

The sugar palm: the symbol of Cambodia

The sugar palm is known as the fetish tree of the Khmer people. Established in the kingdom since very ancient times, thnot is literally one with Cambodia.

So much so that for the Khmers, this tree with 1000 virtues is the indisputable mark of identification of the territory of the country as illustrated by this popular maxim: where s he raises the thnot is Khmer land.

The thnot play a very important role in preventing soil erosion during the monsoon. Khmer farmers spend six months of the year cultivating rice and the other six months harvesting palm sap for a steady income throughout the year.

During the dry season, from January to May, when rice cannot be planted, many villagers depend on palm trees for a living.

The Harvest

The Harvest

The sap harvest period, according to the specifications of the Geographical Indication, extends from December 1 to April 30 (KSPA, 2009).

The climber exerts pressure and then notches the inflorescence of the palm.

The sap is collected in bamboo containers which are unhooked twice a day: at the end of the day and at night. Each inflorescence produces between 45 and 60 days (Pillot, 2008). Therefore, one tree can produce 100 kg of pulp (KSPA, 2009).

To produce palm sugar it is essential that the sap has not had time to ferment. This is why the peasants place pieces of Popèl wood in it to prevent fermentation.

The sugar concentration varies according to the harvest months and the sex of the tree. The amount of sap depends on these two parameters, but also on the tree itself, the soil and the tapper. (Borin, 1996)
