I understand the appeal of organic sugar: sugarcane and sugar beets take chemical fertilizers and pesticides and that’s both harmful and unsustainable.
But I don’t understand the moral superiority of the same organic sugar once it’s been packed in plastic and shipped halfway around the globe. And no, sometimes I don’t want to taste the natural rawness of it, thank you. (That’s what my glass bottle of molasses is for.)
The United States produces a lot of sugar, and since I don’t use much, I’ll be happy with the twice-yearly two pound paper sack.
