the making of jaggery IN INDIA - A very hands-on process

Jaggery is essentially unrefined sugar.

1 - Harvest the Indian sugarcane. Sugarcane and the earliest production of sugar came from northern India and India is currently the worlds 2nd largest producer.

2 - The juice is squeezed from the cane and filtered.

3 - The raw sugarcane juice is boiled in a round-bottomed vessel, fired by wood.

5 - After boiling, stirring and turning the juice has cooled to become a brown sugar like substance called Jaggery with most the moisture evaporated. 

6 - Further moisture is squeezed out leaving the Jaggery balls ready to produce the rum.
