Such a beautiful sweet word that I’ll never tire of hearing and especially not eating.
Sugar cane is the best snack created!
It’s so sweet and refreshing and 100% natural,
So it’s good for you….
Well kinda (“,) he he he he….
From the 1st day my husband introduced me to this natural phenomenon I fell in love.
There’s something about it’s simplicity, textural changes and juiciness that makes it perfect.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, It’s where cane sugar comes from.
The plant looks kinda like bamboo with a tough skin and a firm fibrous center that holds all the sweet sugary juice (“,) mmmm…. mmmm…. mmmm….
When you take a bite of the inside it’s firm but when you sink your teeth into it, all the sweet juice squirts into your mouth and that’s where the pure tasty satisfaction comes (“,) and be prepared for allot of noise making, this stuff is tough.
When you have extracted all the juice you will be left with a woody, fibrous piece don’t eat it discard it and move onto your next piece.
My dad said he used to eat it when he was a child in Cyprus. He would go to his village lake and he would pick them strip the skin with his fingers and start munching on the sugar. Lucky him hey!
A lady I used to work with she was from the West Indies and she said when she was a kid she would strip the skin with her teeth and then get stuck in.
First they either used their fingers or their teeth to strip it and,
Secondly they had sugarcane in abundance as kids!
Seriously speaking though watch my video below and see me cut, prepare and eat sugarcane and then tell me if you can use your hands or teeth to strip the skin.
Plus watch until the end if you want a laugh and see some funny bloopers.
