The Processing Of Making Palm Sugar
The making of palm sugar begins with taking the sap from the palm tree, by hitting the stalk of the flower bunches from the base of the tree to the flower bunches, this process is carried out for one month aiming to smooth the path of the sap tree that will come out.
Entering the next stage, is tapping or the process of taking sap water from the tree. Palm trees that are ready to be tapped for their sap are characterized by a fragrant aroma. This process is carried out by farmers called Penderes, and done 2 times a day in the morning and evening, the result of the palm tree depends on the level of soil fertility and its treatment.
Cooking process for 4-5 hours while stirring occasionally so as not to burn. During this cooking process, the sap water will release foam which must be removed. So that when molding the sugar can harden, and not blacken.
After boiling for a while, the liquid sugar will slowly change color to a brown color. This liquid will also issue small explosions like magma.
The ready to mold sap can be identified by dissolving a small amount of cooked sap in cold clean water. If the sap freezes immediately, then the palm sugar is ready to be mold.
Next, the palm sugar that has frozen in the sugar mold, is left overnight to cool, then can be packaged. If palm sugar is packaged in hot condition, it will make the sugar moist and easy to mold.
