I realized I hadn’t shared a lot of what I’ve done with sugar cane over the last while. This actually predates the sugar paste experiments. So here’s a huge update heavy on the photos. (Also a shameless test of the new photo plugin I’m using for enlarging photos on click)
First, my failed sugar cane juice crystallization experiments:
I’ll be trying again sometime, I have a few ideas that might make it work but I think I’m just not working with fresh enough cane.
Next up is my experiment last year with growing some cane.
So there are my experiments so far with sugar cane. Hopefully I will come across some more at the grocery store, but you really have to get it during Chinese New Year, it isn’t stocked very much other times of the year. Also, although I’m going to try one more time, I’m pretty sure that the cane isn’t fresh enough to crystallize the juice from it, however, I plant to try growing it again.
