Savor sorghum's sweetness
Making sorghum has been part of Doug Cantrells life since he was a child. Each year he grows the sorghum cane, and proceeds through the many steps to get the finished sweet product. Here he is cooking the syrup, processing it through four cooking pans.
A sweet aroma fills the air as Doug Cantrell starts the sorghum-making process at his Dibrell-area farm. It’s a process he finds himself doing each fall, one he and his family have been part of for as long as he can remember. It’s a tradition handed down to him from his parents Bill and Bertha Cantrell, who had learned the process from Bertha’s father Venus Glenn.
