    This is a Japanese unrefined black sugar that comes from the regions of Okinawa and Kagoshima. It can be bought in both powdered form or in large brown chunks. It is a central ingredient in many traditional confections and adds a rich molasses flavour. Chunks of kurozato are used as a cooking ingredient and also eaten straight like a sweet.
