Piloncillo or Panocha by El Guapo (2 / 8 oz Cones) - 16 oz.
Hard Brown Sugar Cane Chunks or Cones. Panocha (pieces) de piloncillo (panela or penuche) is a delicious ingredient to prepare Mexican Desserts, such as Capirotada, camotes and cafe de olla.
The unrefined brown sugar is known worldwide as panela, but its Mexican version, piloncillo (pee-lon-SEE-yoh), is very tasty. Piloncillo (pee-lon-SEE-yoh) gets its name from its cone shape and comes in light or dark brown. The taste of piloncillo is richer, and its consistency is harder, than the brown sugar. Piloncillo is made from pure sugar cane juice from cane that has been hand cut, crushed mechanically and then heated to reduce its water content. The resulting thick syrup is poured into cone-shaped molds to dry. Purists appreciate its unadulterated aspects: it's molasses-free, chemical-free.
You can chop your piloncillo or panocha, grate or get out a molcajete to grind just the amount you need from a cone, which should be kept dry and tightly wrapped.
In some South American countries piloncillos is also called panela. Panela is a pure, wholesome, traditional, unrefined, non-centrifugal whole sugar. It contains the natural goodness of minerals and vitamins inherently present in sugarcane juice. Panela is known by many names such as- turbinado sugar, Jaggery, Gur, Raspadura, Piloncillo, Panocha or Penuche.

After moving from Texas quite a number of years ago, I have had difficulty finding piloncillo that isn't "fake" and is reasonably priced for specific recipes where there simply isn't a substitute. I'm very happy to finally find what I need. I'm very happy with the product.

We needed this for some recipes and were able to buy it from Mexgrocer.
Just what we needed, and priced right.
Package image and product as delivered was different. Image showed small pieces, actual package contained 2 large 4 oz. pieces.
