Down in the "deep souf" they make syrup with it, but honestly, I just don't care for the flavor when I have been spoiled by pure maple syrup!

we used to cut the cane up in small pieces and chew it like gum. nice sweet taste. you could even purchase a few short pieces (2-3 feet long) at local flea markets and fruit stands for this purpose.

Save it for seed. Sorghum is an OK cover crop. Birds like the seeds.
