Yes, I know, I actually planted these things on purpose. I guess I didn't realize I would have to cut them with branch loppers. Or at least that once I got the outer foliage off I would need loppers to chop them into pieces small enough to peel.
Or that even once they were peeled, I would STILL need loppers to cut the stalks into pieces small enough to boil.
I'm pretty sure I have never had my loppers in the kitchen before.
By the way, granulated white sugar is waaaay under-priced.
The chunks of sugarcane are boiling in water now, the house smells like brown sugar, and I think we will be having some unusual lemonade this weekend. That's the only pragmatic way to use this stuff that I can think of. Got any other ideas?
