Topic: OT: sort of.. sugar cane (12 msgs / 284 lines)
1) From: Aaron
Does anyone know where I can get sugar cane at for smoking foods in a 
smoker?  I seen on e bay where you can buy plant shoots to plant em and 
grow em but i was kind of looking for some that is ready to use to cook 
with.  Id rather not pay $15 a pound either.
With that, I hear several say you can eat sugar cane, just cut off a 
piece and suck on it it's real sweet.. (um duuh it's sugar)
with that, it be interesting Id think for those who take sugar in their 
coffee, instead of using processed sugar as a sweetener, i wonder if 
they steeped a bit of cane in their coffee or in the brew basket or 
whatever how it'd taste for them.

I can buy it right in my grocery store... but I never have. You could 
make some phone calls to see if any of your local markets carry it.

Aaron - How far from New Iberia, Louisiana are you? They grow LOTS of it
there each year. Perhaps you can link up with someone at a cane farm there
and get a bundle of it mailed to you.
You can suck on it, but isn't super sweet. It is REALLY fibrous.  The sugar
is diluted somewhat by the cane juice's water. They take the cane to a mill,
press out the juice and boil the water off to make "raw sugar". You can buy
"Sugar In The Raw" at many grocery stores.  Our local Super Kroger has
it. It does have more of the cane sugar taste (i.e. - molasses)  than does
refined (white) sugar.  I use it regularly in my morning coffee at home.

Justin,
Do you know if there is a difference between "brown" sugar and "raw" sugar
(which is also brown)?
Thanks,
Brian

Brown sugar is sugar and molasses I'm pretty sure.

Wikipedia is your friend.....
Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product with a distinctive brown color due to the presence of molasses. 
It is either an unrefined or partially refined soft sugar consisting of sugar crystals with some residual 
molasses content or produced by the addition of molasses to refined white sugar.
Brown sugar contains from 3.5% molasses (light brown sugar) to 6.5% molasses (dark brown sugar). The 
product is naturally moist from the hygroscopic nature of the molasses and is often labelled as "soft." 
The product may undergo processing to give a product that flows better for industrial handling. The 
addition of dyes and/or other chemicals may be permitted in some areas or for industrial products.

I haven't purchased brown sugar in years. Whenever I need it for a recipe,
all
I do is add a dash of molasses to regular white sugar. (no 'dyes and/or
additional
chemicals' permitted in my kitchen)

10) From: Tom Ulmer
Aaron-
You're in Florida. There is sugar cane everywhere. I would suggest stopping
by one of the many produce stands and asking them. Most will be able to
accommodate you. Many will be able to provide fresh pressed cane juice which
I recommend trying.

tom i plan on  heading to the farmers market or whatever they call it 
this weekend if it dont rain or something else comes up.
I actually am looking for the entire cane so I can throw it on the fire 
for the smoke.  I think ill grow some of my own too while im thinking of 
it,  give me a constant crop and a nice privacy fence too .

Aaron,
Sugar cane grows on a 2 year cycle, so it won't be a constant crop, or a
constant privacy fence. However, even first year growth has sweet stalks.
