Culinary Arts Classes Experience Sugarcane

Mr. Russell Peters, a local businessman and avid gardener, spoke to the Poplarville CDC Culinary Arts Classes Monday, October 27, 2014.  Mr. Peters talked to the students about growing and processing sugarcane. He demonstrated how to plant and spoke about when it should be planted. Mr. Peters provided each student with an information sheet about different sugars and where sugar comes from.  Peters explained that this is the perfect time of year to grow sugar cane because it grows well in the south.  He brought two varieties of sugar cane to share with the students and for them to experience tasting. Many of the students had never tasted fresh cut sugarcane.  A few of the students had experienced eating sugarcane with their grandparents.
