Sorghum is a cereal grain that grows tall like corn, is drought-resistant and has a wide variety of uses. Besides it's main use in the south as a sweetener, it can be used as a grain, ground into a gluten-free flour, cooked into a risotto and even popped like popcorn.

Sweet sorghum is made by boiling the raw juice squeezed from sorghum cane. The thick, amber-colored sweetener was once a staple in pioneer homes on the western frontier.  Today, it is the centerpiece of Wewoka’s award-winning Festival; an event that celebrates the unique mix of cultures found in the Indian Territory.
