Taste and Aroma Excellent!

Since trying this I am now converted and use all the time in fruit cakes that ask for light brown sugar in the recipe. Yes, there are and will be lumpy bits, it is an unrefined product after all, but I simply sieve it, a very simple solution.

oh no!

almost ruined my cake as it had so many solid pieces that the mixer couldnot break them up! like little pebbles! How can ocado keep aproduct like that? I would be better off bying some in the corner shop...

Packaging needs reviewing

Opened the packet and it split, spilling sugar all over the place - very weak and not up to the job of holding such a heavy ingredient. Sugar is good though

I buy this sugar time after time. Tip about packaging - if you cut the top half inch off, and then fold over and reseal the packet with a tab of sellotape, the packaging works just fine. Not sure what would happen if I tried to pull it apart, and I just don't open it that way. But the sugar is lovely & just right for morning coffee, or when you want sugar with a little bit more flavour than ordinary refined.

Packaging is shocking!

As mentioned by others, the product is fine. However, the packaging leaves much to be desired. It is too thin, rips easily and the sugar always dries out and solidifies, because the packaging does not keep moisture in.

Diana Henry's Tenderstem Nasi Goreng

Diana says: "This is one of my children's favourite recipes and can be adapted to suit what you already have in the house (I don't always put in prawns, for example, and sometimes I make it with leftover pork). Tenderstem broccoli is great for this kind of dish because it cooks quickly and provides great colour."
