What is this stuff? JAGGERY

This my friends is sugar...real, minimally processed cane and palm sugar A.K.A. jaggery.   

Jaggery retains more mineral salts and macronutrients than refined sugar.  Bonus, no chemical agents are needed in it's production.  Even Gandhi felt jaggery was healthier than refined sugar.  Mega bonus, it's flavor is to die for!  Jaggery is moist, sweet, crystally and has a buttery molasses after taste, it literally melts in your mouth.  Think what this lump of sweet heaven could do for your morning coffee. 

Where do I find this elusive sweetener? here.

Where do I find it cheaper?  Any South Asian or Indian grocery store.
