Has anybody used real sugar cane before?

We went to the grocery store this evening and they had actual sugar canes in a barrel this evening! They look like brown bamboo stalks but thick and heavy. How do you open and use it? Anybody?

Ive eaten it! My grandma brought some home from Hawaii years and years ago. From what I remember, you just gnaw on the actual cane part! You just bite the wood part and then the sugar comes out. You dont actually swallow the wood part, just chew it.

No - I have seen it, dh probably wouldn't let me bring an actual sugar cane in the house ~ we grow sugarbeets for a living ~ cane is competition!

Yup, use to eat it all the time. You have to peel down the woody outside stalk to the white flesh inside, then this flesh is chewed on. I personally like it, but DH was like OH NO!! (I think it is because his family grows beets too!)

Re: Has anybody used real sugar cane before?

we grew up eating these! my grandmother had a HUGE plant in her backyard, the plant/tree's leaves are super sharp and slice you..lol
we used to get into it anyway to get the sugar canes.
ash them and cut the ends on both sides then with a knife carefully peel the outer, we used to just chop it kinda squared.
the flesh on the inside is soo tasty! chey it til theres no more flavor but dont swallow it, probably wont hurt you but might constipate you and the kids..hehehe
