Re: Brown Sugar (Baden)

Sorry to upset you, but really, whenever I log on here it's about brown sugar! The joke's old, and really it's not that hard to find! And he did ask how to find it and not where.

Re: Brown Sugar (Baden)

I am not upset at all but the person asked for help...it does not matter how many times you see brown sugar on EF I actually thought the same thing ) but helping or pointing to the right direction is better!

Yeah, that approach is usually the best way, but I can't help thinking this thread is taking this pÔss, hence my sarcastic reply!

Re: Brown Sugar (Baden)

It's out there if you look hard - you may have to roll away a few stones to find it, though.

Re: Brown Sugar (Baden)

I still haven't found the elusive brown sugar, that everyone from Ireland or the UK are used to. It's different. If people are talking about the various types of Rohrzucker, it's not the same. I found you can buy the organic Rohrzucker from Co-Op (organic not important, just best I've found ). I buy this and heat it over a low heat with some sugar and water (very little) and it'll start to clump. Before people say, I've got a lot of time on my hands, I'm a chef, so it features in a lot of my desserts

Hope this helps.

Seriously?

Why would your first question be where to find it if you don't even know what it is or what to do with it?

At the risk of being labeled a sucker, I will play along for the sake of contributing to a "helpful and friendly" forum, since EF sometimes seems to be tagged as the forum for crotchety veteran-types who don't help out noobs.

Look here. (For what it is and what it's for, not for where to find it. I will allow you to practice your forum search skills on your own if you decide you actually need to purchase some!)

I should've known I was being suckered!

My helpful "Be ye kind while on the EF" spirit has been polluted by a troll. Boo.

Side note to F16 -- Trolling via a brown sugar thread is pretty boring. You need some new material.

Coming up next:
Where are the red mailboxes? How can I buy one rice corn? How much money through panhandling on Banhofstrasse? Where can I exchange coins? Is 9k per month enough and where are better panhandling spots?

OK your bad sense of humour is forgiven and how about finishing this thread on a real high by informing those happy folks in Baden where exactly they can buy brown sugar (in Baden) so that anyone searching in the future finds their heart's desire. Now that would be a high point to end your week on

how about this: i will admit that i really like brown sugar cookies my wife makes, she puts walnuts and butter inside and bakes them, it becomes chewy and tastes like high quality baklava i used to have back home.

introducing this nice brown sugar recipe will be the high point end of my long week
