My mom used to tell me that my great grandparents would take as their dessert a teaspoon of "refinado" (that is, refined white sugar). What ?!? I was incredulous (and contemptuous) that some of my ancestors had an "ingredient" of desserts as their main dessert! That was in the 1890s, early 1900s. After more than a century, I can hear my great grandparents have the final HAH! Meet MY "refinado" - Farm to Folk's Coconut Nectar Syrup. Thick, viscous, a deep dark brown that shines a little when the light hits it, and with a sweetness for which you lick your spoon repeatedly till nothing is wasted - Coconut Nectar Syrup is my preprandial "refinado" with gravitas. Loaded with amino acids, sodium, potassium, magnesium, iron, etc. - it is best taken on an empty stomach or before meals for maximum availment of its many health benefits. (The website on Dr. Gerry's Coconut Nectar Syrup is most enlightening and instructive.) Among the many superfoods I take daily, this one easily gets the golden buzzer.
