I have never tried to make it but down here in South Carolina I have
seen sugar cane at the Flea Markets, as well as at some of the open air

the International Market.
Ya know I have never even thought about making Sugar from the Cane....
but damn they sell it so I guess there must be a way right? Hmmmm might
just have to check that out on line to see how it is done.
