Mexican sugar question

Spencer | Jul 18, 2005 09:57 AM

Okay, so I have this recipe for grilled pork chops with Rocoto Chile and sugar cane glaze. The recipe calls for Chancaca sugar- said it was brown and cone shaped. When I got to the grocery store I couldn’t remember the name of the sugar. I found a sugar item that was brown and cone shaped- it is named Piloncillo Sugar. Didn’t realize the name difference till I got home. Question: Is this the same stuff but just with a different name? And, if not the same, is it close enough to work for my recipe?
Thanks a ton,
