Mom Tips

If you prefer, you can pour the candy into a greased dish and, once it has cooled, cut the candy into small pieces.

Soft bullet point: It takes approximately 8 minutes to reach this point. Using a spoon, drop some of the syrup into a glass of cold water. It will be done when, when you remove the syrup from the water, a little ball forms that soon loses its shape.

Rapadura can be found in good supermarkets, at a specific stall in open-air markets or at the Municipal Market in your city.
