How long does sorghum keep and what are some good uses for it besides putting it on your biscuits? About 2 or 3 years ago, my wife's grandma gave us a bunch of jars of stuff she canned up herself. Most of it was jelly and blackberries, but I opened a jar last night thinking it was jelly and it turned out to be sorghum. We already had a bottle of some we bought for a recipe once and we just don't go through it very quickly.
Seems I have heard of a type of candy being made from sorghum but I dont have a clue how.I recall when I was real young someone in my family tried to make it.I think it
involves heating sorghum for awhile and then pulling and tugging at it and finally cutting it.I am guessing that was 45 plus years ago.
yea alot of people are cutting it with corn syrup even some amish are doing it now. alot of the amish sorghum aint fit to eat. Alot of it has to do with the way the canes been worked up if the cane hasnt been stripped it makes a big difference. If the cane hasnt been stripped of the leaves and deheaded the sorghum wont be fit for livestock as far as im concerned.Jonas Yoder in Crittenden Co. makes the best sorghum I've ever had. Took some to my Dad who is a sorghum snob and he kept it for eating. He claims he can tell in one bite if it has been cut with corn syrup. He gave all his other sorghum to my Mom to make cookies with. Said it had been cut. I've got a quart now someone else made. It looks like old motor oil but doesn't taste as good. I tried using it to lay down a trailing scent for coon but they would have none of it. I might have to put what's left in a pint jar and regift it.
