Molasses Making Resumes

OK:  We made 3 batches of Molasses over the last 2 weekends.  We had a great time.  It is a huge amount of work and we aren't kidding one bit.  But everyone took a piece of the load.  And there it was: that lovely Golden Syrup and 40 plus gallons of it.

Enough cane for 1 more batch stood in the 2 fields at our Farm and the family Farm in Millard. But the decision was made that we were done. The equipment was put away and the area was cleaned up.  We relaxed a bit and headed into other projects that had been put on the back burner.

The folks at the Possibility Alliance said they would help with another batch.  Initially, there were no takers.  And just today, Hollis Dale said:  "Let's do it."  So next weekend we will be making that final batch.  This is something we just love to do and here we go again.
