Piloncillo - Unrefined Whole Cane Sugar
100% Pure Mexican Raw Cane Sugar - approx 220 grams.
Commonly used in Mexican cooking, this sugar is deliciously rich in flavour, similar to molasses. Piloncillo is as minimally processed as sugar can get, short of chewing it out of the sugar cane yourself. Learn about how Piloncillo is made - click here

Typically offered in cone shapes, sugar cane juice is boiled down to a thick crystalline syrup and poured into cone-shaped moulds to harden.
You can use Piloncillo as a sweetener, a spice, or both and expect fabulous rum-like notes as well as smoky, earthy elements. It is sweet but less so than refined Sugar. Piloncillo can also be used in savoury uses by way of adding a little sweetness to Chile sauces and used with all Meats, Beans and soups.
