    Any GOOD way to make this sweet treat primal?

    I saw this on Dinners, Drive-ins, and Dives....

    A Jamaican lady made this..... She cut up small cubes of ginger and coconut.... like 3/4" cubes. She put them in a hot pan, and placed brown sugar and water over them. She let is get nice and gooey, then scooped it out and placed it on a cookie sheet that was covered in parchment paper.... Then she put it in the oven. When it came out, she let it cool, and she broke it like brittle.....

    Now, I could see MAYBE honey, or MAYBE grade B maple syrup.....

    I am thinking that a 1" square might be a nice treat once in a great while.

    honey would be good (i don't like maple ) but it wouldn't harden i don't think

    uuuhhhhhmm... perhaps make it in small batches when you'd like the occasional treat, or use coconut oil then cool it in the fridge until it hardens?
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    Coconut sugar? That's all I can think of.

    I've had good luck using blonde coconut palm sugar in place of brown sugar in recipes. I've even made a caramel sauce for ice cream with it following a standard recipe. It's not as sweet as brown sugar and low glycemic, plus it includes some nutrients. Not an every day item, but would probably serve as a good stand in for your recipe.
