(Sp. almibar) Thin, freely-flowing molasses in the initial stage of the process of sugar-milling. 1.) inutús-the watery juice squeezed out of the sugar-cane. 2.) arníbal-very thin molasses containing much water. 3.) lasáw-thickening molasses, syrup of the consistency of light honey. 4.) pulút-thick molasses nearing the stage of crystallization or hardening. The pulút, very sticky and viscous, is taken from the cauldron and put into troughs, where by cooling and stirring it slowly hardens or crystallizes to the finished, but unrefined, product of sugar. This last stage of the process of sugar-milling is called "pagasúkar sang pulút"-"to turn the pulút into sugar". See under asúkar. 5.) asúkar, kalámay-sugar.
(Sp. azucar) Sugar; to make sugar including all the operations in the final stage of the process of sugar-milling, transferring the pulút (the sugar-cane-juice that has become thick and sticky through evaporation) from the cauldron to a flat-bottomed trough and stirring it there with special shovels, till ready for drying and packing. Asukára na lang ang pulút. Turn the pulút into sugar. Asukári akó sing isá ka káwà nga pulút sa madalì, kay may kinahánglan akó sinâ. Turn me a cauldronful of pulút into sugar at once, for I need it. Iasúkar akó ánay siníng pulút. Please turn this pulút into sugar for me. (see arníbal, kalámay).
