Jaggery

Description
Jaggery is a traditional Non-centrifugal cane sugar consumed in Asia and Africa. It is a concentrated product of date, cane juice, or palm sap without separation of the molasses and crystals, and can vary from golden brown to dark brown in color. It contains up to 50% sucrose, up to 20% invert sugars, and up to 20% moisture, with the remainder made up of other insoluble matter, such as wood ash, proteins, and bagasse fibers. Jaggery is mixed with other ingredients, such as peanuts, condensed milk, coconut, and white sugar, to produce several locally marketed and consumed delicacies.

Origin and Distribution
Jaggery is made of the products of sugarcane and the date palm tree. The sugar made from the sap of the date palm is both more prized and less commonly available outside of the regions where it is made.

The coconut palm is tapped for producing jaggery in West Bengal, South India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka, syrup extracts from kithul (Caryota urens) trees are widely used for jaggery production. This is considered the best-quality jaggery available in local market and is given a higher value than that from other sources. All types of the sugar come in blocks or pastes of solidified concentrated sugar syrup heated to 200 C (392 F). Traditionally, the syrup is made by boiling raw sugarcane juice or palm sap in large, shallow, round-bottom vessels.

Uses
Jaggery, also called gurh, is used as an ingredient in sweet and savory dishes. It is used in a dish called chakkarai pongal. They also include jaggery toffees and jaggery cake made with pumpkin preserve, cashew nuts, peanuts and spices..

Jaggery may be used in the creation of alcoholic beverages such as palm wine.

Besides being a food, jaggery may be used, mixed in an emulsion with buttermilk and mustard oil, to season the inside of tandoor ovens.
