    Arrow Cane Syrup Cooking Pics

    We ended up making syrup on Saturday instead of Friday & had a great time. Thought i'd share a few pics.

    Re: Cane Syrup Cooking Pics

    Oh gosh cmc, THAT brought back sooo many memories of my dad and uncle making syrup when I was little. They used a mule to turn part of the contraption...I can just remember getting to ride the mule with my cousins. I can remember how good it smelled all around. They would make many gallons of syrup and my uncle would sell it in the little stores all around the area. This was up in Clarke Co. close to Enterprise. The next morning after the syrup had been made my granny would make dozens and dozens of biscuits for all the grandkids and my aunts and uncles who always was there to eat breakfast. I usually had to help churn the butter. Don't know which was better, the biscuits, the syrup or the butter! Put together it was ALL great...usually had ham that they had smoked and cured.

    THANKS for the memories!

    Re: Cane Syrup Cooking Pics

    I am incredibly thankful that I have gotten to see first hand this process. When I was little my dad would let me ride my horse down to the neighbors and I would lead the mules around and around in circles to work the press... They just liked to do it the old fashioned way but eventually started to use a 4 wheeler instead of mules, and then the tractor like in these pictures... Sadly they dont make the syrup anymore and havent for a couple of years now due to a death in the family... Sold the equipment and the fields grew over....

    I love chewing on sugar cane

    Thanks so much for the pictures chef.

    Re: Cane Syrup Cooking Pics

    Here ya go Maggie-Doodle, here's a pic of the mule powered syrup mill in use. This was the 1st year we had used the powered mill, though faster it was to noisy & no where near as much fun as the mule driven one...

    Speaking of equipment, if anyone knows of a deal in one of the mule driven mills i'd really like to get my hands on one.

    My apologies dude, but they were wishy-washy this year & I did not find out till 7pm Friday night that I needed to be there Saturday morning at sunup...It is all kinds of fun & even though this years was the smallest turn out of people we did about twice as much cane as usual and finished a lil after 3.

    Re: Cane Syrup Cooking Pics

    We had a Cane Mill run for years. Started with a Mule and ended up using a tractor too. I loved those Syrup Sops we'd have on early saturday mornings after cooking it all night and having Biscuits cooked by the ladies for the community to all come and share a taste.

    Re: Cane Syrup Cooking Pics

    Thank you so much for the wonderful memories. I loved to eat the actual sugar cane and remember mom or dad buying it at the stores when I was little or dad bringing some back when he went back to home in Marion County. And, I remember when Dad and his brothers would make syrup over in Marion County, a small community named Sandy Hook. Every time he would go back over home he would bring back some more syrup. As I got older, I remember going with him over there and watch the brothers and the mules make the best syrup ever. Put that syrup with some butter and biscuits and there's nothing better, specially on a cold day. When we went to Cades Cove in the fall (Gatlinburg) we always enjoyed watching them making syrup and daddy would recall how they did it. I can also remember him talking about killing hogs in the cold weather and his experiences around that - he didn't like doing that. It's a shame these younger children don't have a better opportunity to experience these wonderful aspects of life.
