  6. Hi Indira,
    Am visiting your website these days. I feel the recipes are fabulous. You are an amazing cook and a narrator too.
    I could not stop myself to post a comment on the sugarcanes. I love them and i have missed them eating on Shankranthi after coming to US.
    Like others shooting the same Q, where did you find them? 🙂
    Thanks & GoodLuck!!

  7. Besides Indian grocery stores, I have been able to locate sugar cane at any South American or Mexican supermarket or even regular supermarket located in the area with heavy Hispanic population. Even my local Whole Foods carries it, but, of course, as tends to be the case at WF, it is expensive.

  8. Indira: I have been craving for a bite of the good ol’ sugar cane. I live in the seattle area. I wonder where you found these.

  9. Shubha: I would like to prepare juice but I don’t have suitable machine for that. So just cut them to cubes and enjoy. That’s the only thing I’m doing with fresh sugarcane so far.

    Anita: A lot, actually.:)

    Hi Sandeepa, RP, SG, Savi : I purchased it from Uwajimaya (in International District), an Asian grocery shop here in Seattle. 3 pieces for one dollar and some change.

    Victoria: Whole Foods too? I didn’t know that. In Florida, we can get fresh sugarcane juice from roadside stalls, particularly in Miami. I miss fresh sugarcane juice.

  10. Hi Indira, I was looking for sugarcane in our local flea market for Pongal but found none this year. It came in a week late. Intrestingly, it is usually available around this time in Florida…and very cheap too. Last year I bought a whole stick for a dollar or two.

    So, what did you do with the sugarcane? Any new treats we can look forward to?

  11. How come this is in green colour? Is it a different variety? I have seen only dark brown skin?

    Indira replies:
    InjiPennu, there are atleast three different varieties of sugarcane. dark brown, white and this green type. Also this is a young sugarcane bamboo, not too old. I separated the outer covering with a knife, that young.
    I also corrected the spam karma setting. Please let me know if the same message appears again. Thanks Inji!

  14. If you are looking for a commercial sugar cane extractor machine, be prepare to pay for at least $3,000.00 for it, and it is not cheap. So far, I have not heard of $300.00 machine. Best of luck in finding that $300.00 deal.

  15. I saw people buying sugar like crazy at Michael Fresh Market in Naperville Illinois. I wondered what they were going to use it for.
