Making Sugar the Old Fashioned Way!

Growing sugar was very popular in Hawaii for a long time. Now all the cane is grown in southeast Asia.
I'm standing by a very old sugar cane press. Sugar cane is just giant grass. It was harvested and fed through the rollers on this wooden machine when a crank was turned. The juice was squeezed out and then "cooked down."
