How to Eat Sugarcane

According to me, this is the proper way to enjoy sugar cane straight from the stalk.  You don't really "eat" it.

This is the sugarcane stalk - a short one.  With a sharp knife, cut it at the joints then trim off the outer husk so all that you have is the softer but fibrous insides.  Then you cut the softer inside into strips.

Chew the strips and suck out the sweet juice.  Spit!  I don't like swallowing those stringy fibers. 

So that's my way of snacking on sugarcane  The savages in my home think the best way to eat a sugarcane is to peel of the husk and chew the whole thing up like a beaver chomping on wood.  You think so...?
