If the coconut sugar you have is "coconut palm sugar" then that's palm sugar. It's not as sweet and lacks the finesse of regular (more moist) palm sugar. Add it to taste. Or try a 1:1 ratio of coconut palm:light brown sugar. I usually use light palm sugar for my homemade Sriracha; that can be subbed by light palm sugar. Does edamame2003 specify which kind of palm sugar? There are 2 basic kinds -- light and dark palm sugar.

For reference, see my recipe: http://www.vietworldkitchen...
