Piloncillo is made from unrefined cane juice that’s reduced by boiling then poured into cone-shaped molds to dry. The resulting brown sugar cone is richer in flavor and harder in texture than regular brown sugar. Piloncillo is a staple in the Mexican kitchen and is primarily used as a sweetener in flan, capirotada and other desserts. It adds caramel-rich flavor to traditional beverages like hot chocolate, ponche and atole. The cones are often melted into syrup for serving over buñuelos. Piloncillo is one of the many products offered by El Guapo and you can be confident that they are of the highest quality.
