Piloncillo is a traditional cane sugar and therefore, above all, a very pure sweetener from Latin America, made from the thickened juice of the sugar cane, which has then been pressed into a solid mass. Piloncillo is often sold as in this case 100% natural and in the form of small cone-shaped blocks.

The taste of Piloncillo is rich and caramel, similar to brown sugar. However, with a slight malt note. Piloncillo is popular in Mexican cuisine, especially in desserts, sweets and drinks such as atole or champurrado. To use piloncillo, it can be grated or crumbled and then dissolved in liquid or added directly to a batter or other recipes.

It adds its own sweet flavor to dishes and can give them a darker, more golden color. Piloncillo is a popular alternative to our white sugar and is appreciated for its natural character and complex flavors.

You can find a small recipe with piloncillo further down on this product page.
