Farmers Market at Paseo Cayalá: Jugo de Caña

Sugar Cane Juice
Jugo de Caña, sugar cane juice, is a simple pleasure mostly enjoyed by people on Guatemala’s Eastern country side. Usually you see stands by the side of the road offering to road travelers. And finding it in Guatemala City is almost impossible.

Luckily there was a person selling it at the Farmers Market at Paseo Cayalá. And he was pressing the sugar cane right on the spot.
There is nothing added to this juice, just get it out of the sugar cane and it is ready to be drank.
My tip: I usually let it ferment for 3-5 days to give it a little kick. Don’t forget, the best rums in the world are made from this juice.
