For those of you who are not familiar with the Tonka bean, it is a bean native to Latin America. This spice, also called " coumarou ", comes from the Brazilian teak tree and is very popular in the kitchen, especially in pastries. It is particularly appreciated by top chefs.

What is the flavour of Tonka bean brown sugar?

The making of brown sugar with Tonka bean

Brown sugar is a product of sugar cane. The cane is crushed to extract a juice which is then purified. This juice contains 85% of water which must be eliminated by evaporation, it is then boiled, wrung out and dried before being packaged.

The tonka bean grows on Brazilian teak in orange fruits that look like a small mango. When the fruits fall from the tree, they are harvested and the bean, this precious spice, is extracted and dried for up to a year in a shaded area. They are immersed in an alcohol bath before being dried again.
