Mi Huerta makes their very own sugar cane called Mi Huerta Piloncillo. It’s name means “little pylon” because of it’s shape. It is 100% natural and made from pure, unrefined sugar that is pressed into a cone shape. The sugar cane cones are 8 ounces and are usually very hard. However, once cooked with ingredients desired, it tastes very much like brown sugar with a molasses flavor (even though it does not contain molasses). You can use it for anything that calls for brown sugar.
In order to cook with Mi Huerta Piloncillo correctly, there is one important process. Chopping piloncillo is one of the most efficient ways to break it up. Use a sharp, serrated knife in a slicing motion to scrape and chop the Mi Huerta Piloncillo. A few bigger chunks may break off during this process which you can further chop, or just leave the chunks in depending on what the recipe is for. If you are going to make a syrup, the chunks will dissolve down. If you are making something like Atole (Mexican hot drink), you will want minimal chunks as the piloncillo won’t have as much time to dissolve.
Our Mi Huerta Piloncillo is well packaged, easy to use and delicious. No other sugar has our pure, authentic taste and natural qualities.
