Nordzucker Sweet Family Krusten Kandis Box of 500 Gr / 17.6 Oz
A staple in most German households, these original shaped Brown Sugar Crystals are well suited to sweeten any type of hot tea. The light hint of caramel enhances the flavor of most hot drinks. The larger than average crystals will dissolve in hot drinks, but there is an element of sophistication and "Old World Class" in slowly stirring these beautiful, sugary crystals until they are totally incorporated into the drink. For best results, store cool and dry.
Krustenkandis are produced in large containers. The growth of large sugar crystals requires time and rest. After ripening, the crystals are broken, ground and sieved to the desired crystal size before packaging.
Here is a recommendation for the cold time of the year: try it with rum and hot water, we german call that "Rum Grogg"
Kandis Sugar - Arabs had this kind of sugar already in the 9th century. Kandis was still produced 100 years ago by first crystallizing the "purified, but not heavily cooked-up sugar juice in copper vessels (Potten), which were traversed by twisting threads, first in a cool place, then a few days in the" Darrstube "(Brockhaus, 1865)
Today Kandis is produced industrially from highly concentrated sugar solution in large crystallization containers. The sugar solution constantly flows around the resulting sugar crystals. These then grow to a size of about four millimeters in five days. Brown Kandis is made from a caramelized sugar solution which brings him his unique caramel note. Kandis is used for sweetening tea and other hot drinks and has great importance in Germanies East Frisian tea culture.
