Sorghum Chews

From Champaign, OH

<p>For our 2nd Sorghum Festival this past October, we wanted to have a second sample for people to try using the sorghum, in addition to our cookies that are a hit everywhere we take them. My mom actually played around with a caramel recipe until she came up with these chews, which we told her she perfected with flying colors!! They are <span class="caps">VERY</span> soft and chewy, with a distinct, sweet and tangy flavor.</p>
