A great natural sweetener, sorghum is unique and delicious. Sorghum production begins with milling, and many cooking techniques can be used to make sorghum syrup. Sorghum production is practiced by farmers and supported by consumers who are looking for a natural self-sustaining sweetener.
Part of sweet sorghum syrup production is the day of milling and cooking the juice from the sorghum canes. A group effort, especially for the cooking and skimming process, makes producing this homegrown natural sweetener a fun, community event with a sweet end result.
