Panela is the most common name for the traditional sugar produced and consumed throughout Latin America and the Caribbean by concentrating freshly extracted cane juice. Most is still made in small-scale, on-farm mills (trapiches) with traditional technology.
Sugarcane is cut, transported to the mill (in some places still by donkey) and crushed. The juice is filtered and boiled down in open pans to evaporate its water content and make a thick syrup which is traditionally poured into cones, disks or blocks. It's then mostly granulated where the juice is boiled down and then the syrup is beaten to form free-flowing fine soft golden-brown granules.
