Store demerara sugar in a cool, dry place.
Demerara sugar can be used as you would brown sugar in most recipes. It can also be dissolved in hot or cold drinks and used to make simple syrup to sweeten drinks, sorbets, or cakes. This sugar’s crystals’ large size and beautiful color lend themselves to garnishing. Using demerara sugar to top homemade crème brulee will allow you to better gauge how much sugar to use (conventional sugar often is hard to see against the custard) and impart subtle molasses flavors to your dessert.
