Juicing, with Sugarcane

by on February 24, 2015

Genius, I thought as soon as my eyes fell upon the juicer.


Still in its box after 6 months, the time was now.


If you know me, you’ll know I’m crazy about sugarcane, even when it involves physical labour. So the idea of juicing it was sooooooooo welcome.

Well, it took me a few minutes to get the hand of the machine, and then it was a breeze.

In no time, the stalks of the cane were spit in two – a pile of shredded sugarcane and a glass of juice. I was shocked at how efficient the machine was/is, to shred sugar cane to cotton candy is no easy feat.


Joy. Till it was time to drink and I noticed a thick head of fibres…


I strained it off, with cheesecloth in a sieve but still, the resulting juice was sweet but gritty.

And when I decanted the juice into mini glasses, there remained another layer of sediment. Sigh.


Alas, the search isn’t over for easy sugarcane juice. Somebody help me :).

I do have one last plan but I’m not hopeful it’ll work. We’ll see.[wpurp-searchable-recipe]Juicing, with Sugarcane – – – [/wpurp-searchable-recipe]
