Piloncillo is the Mexican name for raw, unrefined sugar basically evaporated sugarcane syrup that has been set up in small thimble-shaped moulds. Unlike commercial brown sugar (which is usually refined sugar to which molasses has be added to make it brown again), piloncillo has a much more complex flavour and is not cloyingly sweet. Among the many other names for this product are panela, panocha, chancaca, rapadura (Latin America), jaggery, gur (South Asia), panutsa (Philippines).
