I was looking at a cookbook today and ran across a recipe for a sweet cinnamon liqueur.  It calls for "brown rock sugar".  Is this turbinado sugar?  I googled but wasn't completely sure so decided to come ask you guys.

Thanks!

Piloncillo sugar maybe. Its a Mexican brown sugar that is pressed into hard cones.

You may be right.  The recipe calls for 7 ounces.  It doesn't say anything about breaking it up but shows step-by-step pictures and the picture shows a rough granulated looking substance.  It's not really clear.

This picture shows what we would call rock sugar-they are like little stones of brown sugar.  Up until a few years ago they were often served with coffee in restaurants and cafes here until individual sachets took over.

in my neck of the woods it can be purchased at health food stores...you might try looking at one in your area.
