I am participating in outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan, to see more click on the button in my sidebar.
The pics aren't in order so bear with me kids ! The pics were taken at a Mennonite communuty we visit alot . Here is some of their baked goods for sale.
I remember my grandmother saying that many times her mother would call them to the table to eat and all they would have is sorghum and cornbread to eat . Because that is all they had. You can put sorghum on pancakes, biscuits, or cornbread . My hunny bunny likes it over a bowl of cheerios.Yuck, not me ! But I did try it over the cornbread . I took the hot cornbread, put some butter on top, and poured the sorghum over it . Guess what ? It was GOOD !
To me sorghum has a strange tangy taste to it.I think it is one of those things you have to acquire a taste for.They sell a bread that I buy all the time and it has sorghum in it. It is very good also.
This is the finnished product bottled up and ready to sale.
The sugar cane juice is boiling.The foam is skimmed off .
This fella is feeding the sugar cane through that mechanism .See the stalks of sugar cane beside him . Notice the crushed cane laying below the mechanism.Can you see the juice running out of the spout, it's on the side.It's running into the covered barrel .
You can click on the pic to get a closer look if you need to.
And these big boys walk around and around turning the mechanism that is crushing the cane .
The end, hope you enjoyed !
