Stripping taking the leaves off the sorghum cane Cutting and getting it ready to take to the cane mill
The mill mashes the cane and squeezes the juice out of the stalks. It takes about 8 to 10 gallons of juice to make one gallon of sorghum syrup.
Justin and Kristy take a well deserved break after all the cane was picked up.
Love That Sorghum
The pictures above were taken just before we started the cooking process. While cooking the green juice, impurities come to the top of the boiling liquid which must be skimmed off. The end result is a golden sweet syrup that is wonderful on biscuits, pancakes, peanut butter, hot oatmeal and many other foods that become a real treat once sorghum is added. Contact us and we will be glad to ship you a bottle of this great syrup.
