Ngọt như mặt đường mèo, mát như đường pnhát.Sweet as svà sugar (refined sugar), cool as rock sugar.– old folk saying

Known in English as roông xã sugar or even roông chồng candy, con đường pkém can be trắng or golden. The second time I returned khổng lồ Canadomain authority from đất nước hình chữ S, my mother-in-law packed a big bag of đường pnhát for me to lớn take along. She told me to lớn use it to make chè (sweet soupy desserts) with the fresh lotus seeds that she’d already stuffed into lớn my baggage. It’s also one of the secret ingredients for making a phở broth beyond the ordinary. My husband’s gradmother, whom we gọi Mệ, likes lớn nibble on chunks of roông chồng sugar while sipping svào green tea. This sugar is a specialty of Tỉnh Quảng Ngãi province, a major sugar cane-growing region. Rock sugar is traditionally a popular gift for close friends or family, especially if they are setting out on a trip.

I insisted I didn’t need it, because I didn’t know what else to lớn use it for, & I was going to return khổng lồ VN in a few months. She said she’d bought it just for me, and so, despite all the extra weight it added to lớn my bags, I accepted her gift. It took me a while lớn learn how khổng lồ appreciate rock sugar. The first time I pounded some with a pestle lớn break it into lớn powder, I saw sugarcane fibers threaded amongst the crystals and thought they were impurities from the bags they’d been packaged in for bringing khổng lồ the market. My mother-in-law snickered when she saw me trying khổng lồ pichồng them out. “No, no! Those are cane fibers. They won’t hurt you.”

She usually buys regular, White refined sugar, or mặt đường cát trắng xóa. The crystals are a little larger than we are used to in the West, so it doesn’t dissolve quite as readily, but the taste is almost the same. Because it’s refined, it has no (or few) impurities and it’s what you’ll get with your iced blaông xã coffee and what most Vietnamese cooks use at trang chủ. My mother-in-law says the roông chồng sugar is special & she rarely buys it, but she remembers that when she was small, refined sugar was expensive sầu & cherished, while roông chồng sugar was looked down upon.

Rochồng sugar still has the delicate, smoky flavour from the cane, which is why it’s so good in phngơi nghỉ. It’s not a flavour you can pin down; just a mysterious “something”. It works for Huế Beef Noodle soup và for other soups too.

I use mặt đường phèn whenever I need caramelized sugar for a dish. It melts và caramelizes quickly, whereas refined sugar seems to take forever. I’ve even had it refuse to lớn caramelize at all. Đường pyếu comes through for me every time. And then there’s that wonderful flavour. I take the sugar off the heat while it’s still golden & it continues to lớn darken a little more, but not so much as to thất bại that flavour.I use the caramelized sugar most often for making “kho” dishes; foods that are finished in a fish sauce & caramel mixture. Once in a while, I use it for flans (crème caramel).

If using Vietnamese rochồng sugar to make chè, the sugar can be dissolved & filtered first, to remove the cane fibers. For “kho” dishes và for soups, this isn’t necessary. In the West, rock sugar can be purchased from most Asian markets. Don’t confuse it with the brown or golden discs of palm sugar. (These are made from Toddy Palms, and have sầu a different flavour.) The sugar I get from the market in Huế comes in jagged chunks roughly the form size of golfballs, but I’ve sầu seen it sold as smooth grape-sized pieces in Montreal’s Chinatown. This sugar appears to lớn be harder, drier và almost transparent compared khổng lồ the one I’ve sầu been using. I’ve never tried it though, as I’ve sầu never run out of what I bring baông chồng from cả nước.
