How to Make Your Own Sugar without bees or trees. Not an eHow article, this is from someone who has done it.
Beth Williams: Most of my recipies come from "The Culinary Arts Institute's" Encyclopedic Cookbook. Published in the late 40's or early 50's. It was my mother's. Scratch cooking at it best. :: sugar substitutes- haven't tried these but it's good to know, just in case!
