   demerara: a brown sugar, but each grain is kind of separate. If you
   have a Carribean store in your neighbourhood, their brown sugar is
   what you want. But you can substitute light brown sugar for it.
   Muscvada: Very dark brown sugar (almost black), sticks
   together in one solid lump and has to be prised apart. The
   rawest (and tastiest) of all the sugars. Really good for dark
   cakes and especially Christmas puddings.
   Brown crystal. Very large variagated brown crystals of sugar,
   hard and crunchy usually used in coffee.
   jaggary; barely refined cane sugar.  Substitute a “raw” sugar or
   Mexican piloncillo sugar.
   Scampi OR Dublin Bay Prawns; Butterfly shrimps or Pacific prawns
