@Elaina: "piloncillo" is more raw (if the expression can be accepted) than brown sugar. There is "piloncillo", which is a solid bar of non-refined sugar; "(az˙car) mascabado, which is granulated, but still kind of raw; "az˙car morena(o)", which is almost refined sugar and "az˙car refinada(o)", which is the common white granulated sugar.

There is also "az˙car glass", which is powdered sugar (icing sugar?).


Thank you for the correction on "cumin"... for some kind of reason it sounded to me more like a double n word.
