Mexican piloncollo or panela homemade Answered

Hi, does anybody know how to make traditional piloncillo at home? Most of the time, one can only find a cheap imitation of it at the stores.

Hi, I think Jaggery is what is called Piloncillo. They're just reduced cane juice which is cooled and later let to harden. It is also made from palm sap. As I haven't tried any piloncillo, I may not know the taste difference. You can look for making of Jaggery but please make sure you go for the right one. Hope it helps. Have a good day!
