Sugarcane Juice~Cheruku Rasam


According to my school knowledge the world's largest producer of Sugarcane is India...well so i'm worth enough to participate in Sharuk's Paanchvi Pass(;).....lol):D.

Before starting how to prepare the juice,letzz know something more abt sugarcane gals...Sugarcane called as Cheruku in Telugu.Uses of sugar cane include the production of sugar, Falernum, molasses, rum, soda and ethanol for fuel. 

Have you ever thought of theremains of the crushing,well i thought that it may be used as feed for cows and buffalos,apart from that it is used in several ways like.... may be burned to provide both heat - used in the mill, and electricity - typically sold to the consumer electricity grid, used as raw material for paper and cardboard, branded as "Environmentally friendly" as it is made from a by-product of sugar production.

Fiber from Sugarcane is also used to make mats, screens or baskets . This fiber is also used inUpanayanam a rite-of-passage ritual in India and therefore is also significant religiously.

Usually we get this in summer season.We'll found sugarcane juice shops in each n every corner of our gullies and god the taste is simply mmm...mouthwatering.When I was i my granny house..a small village in Andhra Pradesh..v used to eat Sugarcane with bare tooth n taste is...hmmm.I think every body once in their lifetime did this....n how wonders if keep on chewing,the juice will be really tasty....!!!

I thought of preparing a juice something different and unusual(v wont prepare this@home).So I bought sugarcane from the shopwala..i told him to cut into very small pieces and as we all know wt r things we need to do this....I just tried this,it turned out really tasty.

Ingredients:

Sugarcane pieces

Lemon

Ginger piece(small one)

Crushed Ice

Directions:

Cut sugarcane pieces as small as possible and now take a mixi juice jar,add sugarcane pieces,ginger piece n crushe ice.Blend it well.Drain the juice,remove the pulp n once again blend the pulp.Do this till u feel that thats it.

Add lemon juice as per ur taste,chill it and serve juice with ice cubes.

Your summer juice an unusual one@ur home is ready :D
