It starts here. Fields of growing sugar cane,
or can~a, are then taken to market.
Crushed for the juice,
it is then collected
and boiled. The fire is made from the crushed
stalks. Nothing is wasted.
Once reduced, the panela is moved to a cooling
where it is scooped into buckets and poured
The hardened panela is sold in markets
But in Banos, it's bought and
re-boiled to start their famous taffy
After half an hour of boiling, it's cooled, and
placed on hooks hanging in doorways around town.
Where it is stretched,
Worked and stretched some more; a twenty minute
process of pulling.
Seems everywhere in Banos, they're making
Finally, ripped off into pieces and placed into
smaller molds, the taffy is wrapped in protective plastic.
With ribbons of fruit flavor, and nuts added,
this delicious taffy is sold everywhere in Banos.
For a recommended dentist call.......
