the toddy candy, Myanmar

Burmese women boil the sugar sap of palm trees when it is still sweet and it thickens into a brown sweet paste that rolled into pellets, harden in the air and become jaggery, the toddy candy. Its eaten on its own or melted down like chocolate to use with desserts. Sometimes coconut shreds or chopped plums are added before rolling so that they become special candies. Depending on the area or the cooking process, the jaggery can be creamy beige or dark and full flavored.
