Gula Djawa cylinder 250g
Just like all other palm sugars, Gula djawa is the boiled juice that is extracted from (the blossom of) palm trees, only in this case of a specific palm tree, a sugar palm and the Borassus flabellifer (L). The juice is gently boiled down until it hardens like a breastplate when poured into molds, in this case in hollow bamboo stalks. The taste and color of gula djawa is darker, more coffee and caramel-like than other types of palm sugar. It is also a bit salty and has a slightly fermented / alcoholic taste.
