cutting it (and that takes a lot of effort) and chewing on it as others say is the only way I know how to eat sugar cane.

Boiling it does not get you anything.

In India sugarcane juice is a treat and is available at road side stalls. I think however if a visitor from the west drank that they will surely run a case of an upset stomach.

I love sugarcane juice. In Chicago at Devon they have imported special machines that you run the long sugarcane through and it squeezes out a lightly sweet yellow juice that is absolutely heavenly.

It takes me right back home.

i live in louisiana and there's a HUUUUUUUGE sugar cane field right across the street from my home.

in grinding season, which starts in mid to late october, we simply walk across the street, cut a few stalks, and get to cutting.

then, we just sit up under a shade tree (yes, it's STILL HOT IN OCTOBER), chew on the cane, get all the sweet juice out of it, and give our teeth, gums, and jaws a good workout.

Exactly what I was gonna say! Good stuff...

Also, in Bermuda, where I am from, the "national beverage" is a dark and stormy: Gosselings black Seal rum,and Ginger beer(not ale), with fresh lime juiceand sugar cane...

On another note, you can make skewers out of it for kebabs. Shrimp with cilantro and lime are the first things that pop in my mind...

Use it for skewering, not only for shrimp but for scallops, chicken, lamb, etc. Cut them into 6-8" long pieces. You can even chew on them after you've eaten the food off of them.
