Coconut blossom sugar is created from the blossom of the coconut tree. New sprouts of coconut blossoms are cut and then tied together before they are pollinated and become baby coconuts. The tied blossom bundle will bleed a sap, which is harvested. The sap is heated until it becomes a caramel, which is then dried into a sugar. The sugar is filtered through meshes with different thread counts. The higher the thread count, the finer the sugar granulates. Coconut sugar has been used as a traditional sweetener for thousands of years in the South and South-East Asian regions where the coconut palm is in abundant supply.
