RAISE YOUR OWN SUGAR BEETS
The Following Taken From Fanner's
Bulletin No. 823 Published by the
United States Department of
Sugar beets may be grown in any lo
cality which has tillable soil that is
capable of producing good crops of veg
etables. All sugar beets, if properly handled,
will produce syrup. The beets ar.-i cut
into thin slices aud soaked in hot water
(60 minutes) to extrac; the sugar. The
liquid is then boiled down to the thick
ness desired. , ,
While the boiling is progressing, a
scum will rise on the surface of the
liquid; this should be removed carefully
by means of a skimmer.
As soon as the syrup has reached the
d.'sired consistency and has been skim
med carefully it may be placed in catis
or bottles for future uhc. 1 should be
canned or bottled while hot and tightly
sealed or corked to prevent molding.
A few rows of sugar beets in the
garden will generally be sufficient for
a supply of syrup for home use. A bush
el of beets will produce from three to
five quarts of syrup.
The flavor of the syrup is pWsant. I.
contains the pure juice of the beet root
aud is a wholesome and nutritious food,
which to a certain degree should be
helpful in reducing the sugar bill.
If the evaporation is earrted far
enough and the syrup is allowed to
stand, a dark sugar will settle on,. Thia
sugar will be found very satisfactory
for home use in cases where refined
sugar is not necessary, such as in mak
ing pies or dark-colored eakv.
