Default Petite Canne Sugar Cane Syrup

Keg Works, a NY online retailer of all kinds of good things has made Petite Canne Sugar Cane Syrup part of their catalog. The shipping cost may scare you but 500ml weighs more than 2 pounds, the better news is that since this doesn't contain any alcohol it can be shipped anywhere. And a little goes a long way.

I still have the bottle you gave us at RumFest, Ed and I'd highly recommend it to everyone here. It has a very unique mouthfeel and honey texture which adds a wonderful dimension to ti-punches and Daiquiris

After the use of Ron Abuelo Añejo 7 Años for daiquiris was mentioned by frenchrumlover, we found that Petite Canne syrup made the perfect sweetener, with proportions as follows:

2 oz. Ron Abuelo Añejo 7 Años
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. Petite Canne syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

I suspect that the 5 Años, Ron Abuelo Añejo would also work well, but is as yet unpurchased. The 7 Años makes a very rich tasting daiquiri.

For those of you who fancy the Ti Punch, this is the syrup to use. I have tasted a number of syrups in the Islands, and this one is the best IMHO.
You can use it in Daquiri's and Mojitos. Makes an excellent drink.

I *finally* got a sample of the Petit Canne Syrup from Ed after years of begging. It's the best cane syrup out there, better than any other I've tried. Hopefully, we can get it stocked in local stores here.

Good things usually take time. And in the end, patience is rewarded.

I have a general question about cane syrup. My uncles made it a hobby to grow a small tract of sugarcane, press out the juice in an old grinder that used to be run by a mule, and then boil the juice in one of those big iron kettles until it is a very dark syrup. The dark purple colored cane makes a syrup that I would not want in a drink. It has a strong, iron and molasses taste that I don't like, but it must be how it was in the good old days because they always sell out before the last batch is cooked. A few years ago they made two types, and in the second batch they used green cane. The resulting syrup was lighter in both color and flavor. It wasn't as popular with anyone else, but I really like this one. I've been adding it to pecan pies because those flavors seem to meld so nicely.

So after all that, I'll get back to my question - is this the type of syrup you are talking about?

Good question Linda. I have just ordered a bottle of the Petite Canne syrup from kegworks so I can get a feel for the Martinique version of cane syrup.

How interesting and lucky you are to have family growing cane as a hobby and processing it. I'm sure there is a story in the how and why they are growing the varieties they do, and how they process it. Care to share a bit more about that? You have my interest.

Down here on Vieques Island we have a local resident mid-island who has a small stand of cane on his property. He produces a light syrup known here as Guarapo. He announces availability with a small hand painted wooden sign hanging off his front gate "Hay Guarapo". I noticed on my way home from work today that his sign is back up. Sugar Cane season is back. I'm going to stop by and pick up a gallon...and do some experiments.

You know, I don't know why they chose to grow those particular types. The purple colored cane is traditional in that area, I've seen it all my life, but I'm not sure where the green came from. I'll do a little research on that.
