Melvin’s Homemade Cane Syrup

If you don’t have a couple of bottles of molasses on the kitchen shelf all the time, it sure pays to stay chummy with folks that grow sugarcane or those that make molasses. For me, I usually have a little stand of sugar cane growing somewhere near where it might be needed if you know what I mean. To cook up some molasses, best to get you some canes early cause it takes some tendin’ to put up molasses. A cane has ’bout three good glasses of juice if pressed real good. That’s not really that much so you better plan on needing 8 or 9 canes to get a gallon of juice for cookin’.
