Piloncillo has been around for at least 500 years, and is a raw form of pure cane sugar that is commonly used in Mexican cooking and is sometimes referred to as Mexican brown sugar. It has a deep golden brown color, and a deliciously rich, caramel-like flavor similar to molasses.
We partner with Lo Selecto to bring you authentic Mexican piloncillo. Lo Selecto works with small farmers and organic producers throughout México. The crystallized final product (it is similar in texture to brown sugar) is the result of a long process of selection, drying, purification, squeezing, cooking and grinding. Delicious and aromatic. An excellent addition to coffee (also used to make Cafe de Olla), or sprinkled over yogurt, oatmeal or pancakes.
This makes an excellent gift! Check it out in our Mexican Gourmet Snacks Gift Box and Mexican Gourmet Coffee Box.
