Have you tried Sucanat? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sucanat"Sucanat (a contraction of "Sugar Cane Natural") is non-refined cane sugar.[1][2] Unlike refined and processed white sugar, Sucanat retains its molasses
content; it is essentially pure dried sugar cane juice. The juice is
extracted by mechanical processes, heated and cooled at which point the
small brown grainy crystals are formed."

I use demerara (sometimes called "yellow-D brown") for Irish coffee--I muddle it together with the whiskey in the bottom of the cup till it makes a slurry, then pour in the coffee and finally spoon some freshly-whipped unsweetened heavy cream (whipped only till thick enough to float--you should almost still be able to pour it) on top.  I use turbinado only if I can't find demerara; and resort to sweetened squirt-whipped-cream only when desperate.

I suggest sampling a demerara sugar. The brand available at the local market
here, I believe, is a bit less than $4 for a 50 ounce dispenser.

Seen it at health food stores but haven't tried it. If I need to use a  
natural sweetener that's lower-glycemic, I like agave nectar (and I  
suspect if more bees disappear, we may see more of it on store shelves  
where the honey used to be).  Wonder if I can distill it into tequila?

I tried it when it first came out - had an allergic reaction to it
(don't ask - I think I'm allergic to just about everything - I just
ignore most of it... my body does weird things..) Tried it again, more
recently & I didn't have a strong reaction to it - just couldn't get
used to the taste.

"Sucanat may be confused with Turbinado sugar; however, the two are 
fundamentally different. Turbinado sugar contains only a trace amount of its 
original molasses content, making it more or less like refined sugar except 
with a golden color and a hint of molasses flavor. Sucanat, on the other 
hand, retains its full molasses content and flavor, thus making it, as 
stated above, pure dried cane juice. Its grainy form also contrasts with the 
clear, crystalline form of Turbinado."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sucanat

Hmm - I thought Sucanet was stevia - my mistake. It was stevia that gave me
the allergic reaction!

I was wondering......especially when you said you couldn't get used to the 
flavor since Sucanat (SUgarCAneNATural) is from pure sugar cane juice.  I 
use it when baking cookies. It tastes fine.
I never liked Stevia either!!!

Sucanat is only slightly lower-glycemic than refined sugar, so I  
wouldn't assume it's diabetic-friendly.
