For Nuégados:

  • 1 lb cassava, peeled, rinsed and ground very finely
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 oz cheese, hard or soft, grated
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt

For Panela Honey:

Panela Honey:

  1. Pour the panela into a large saucepan. Add the water and spices.

  2. Simmer over medium heat until the panela is completely dissolved.
  3. Mix and boil over low heat, stirring frequently for about 10 to 15 minutes, until the honey thickens enough to leave the spoon covered with a light layer. Set aside.
