Cooking Sorghum Syrup

Sorghum stalks in the trailer. The tops have been cut off so the stalks are ready to feed into the mill. At this point we had leaves on the stalks. Later we removed the leaves because they were funneling some juice out of the mill inlet. The crushing process seems to go a little smoother if most of the leaves are off. We usually strip the leaves from standing stalks.
