* 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.

Special thanks to ANNE MACLELLAN for actually comparing her set of Australian measures.
