Jaggery syrup

In the last post I wrote about trying jaggery syrup.

Yum. I keep sneaking little drips of it, just to try to get used to the taste.

I tried it in coffee that was a dark Italian roast and didn't like it. I think the meyer lemon did not complement the coffee in a way that I like. Then yesterday I tried it in a Columbian regular roast coffee with milk and it was delicious.

I also tried it with asam tea and milk and it was wonderful.

Jaggery is available at both India Bazaar on Central Ave. in Albany and at India Spice on Fuller Road. The "rock" I mentioned was two pounds. I'm not sure if it's available in smaller amounts.
