    Hi
    Has anyone actually made sugar from sugar beets?
    How is it done and where can I get a non-hybred seed?
    Thanks for any information

    I actually never got around to fdoing this, because some varmits ate my sugar beets....but, I rememebr that you had to boil the beets and add some real sugar which caused the sugar in the beets to crystalize around the real sugar
