What do I do with fresh sugar cane?

kristinester | Mar 4, 201111:17 AM     12

Last year I planted some sugar cane in a pot on my patio, and now the plant is huge and ready to be harvested. It really just started as an experiment of whether it was possible to even grow sugar cane in a container.

Now the question is, what do I do with 7-8 very large stalks of sugar cane? I've looked into making sugar and it seems to be rather involved and requires quite a bit of equipment that I don't have.

The only other thing I seem to be able to find involves using it as an edible skewer for food.

Help!
