Sweet Sorghum

sorghum-1Ronald Jenkins, of Bruce, is producing several thousand pints of sorghum this fall that are available in local stores. Andy Davis, who along with Ricky Tuggle, assists Jenkins, is seen inserting cane into the mill where the extracted juice is pumped into a cooling tank.

sorghum-7Jenkins, who built nearly the entire operation by hand himself, is the lead cook and his wife Janet does all the bottling. See more pictures of the operation in this week's CCJ and video of the process on this website.
