   * 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.
