What is the sweetener you use most often ... and how?

Are there any special ones you use?

I prety much stick to cane sugar and use brown and confectioners suger for cooking. My honey of choice is pumpkin blossom.

I was looking for the difference between brown sugars and came across this site which seems to list every type of sugar, not just brown
http://www.food-info.net/uk/products/...

It includes breif descriptions of the following

Barbados sugar
Barley sugar
Beet sugar

Brown sugar

Castor sugar
Corn sugar
Crystal sugar

HFCS : High Fructose Corn Syrup
Icing sugar
Invert sugar
Jaggery
Lactose

Maltose

Melis
Milk sugar
Molasses
Muscovado sugar
Oligosaccharides

Piloncillo
Powdered sugar

It was a quick,, easy to read answer to my question. I also learned I didn't know about.

This site which started in 1999 seems to have a lot of food info such as a translator of an English food term iinto variousl languages
http://www.fooddictionary.eu/Translat...

I haven't finished exploring everything yet.

This site was more wordy and only covered the US, but still a lot of info

And this actually was what I was looking for ... but I couldn't think of the names
