Sweet treat: Making sorghum syrup a fall ritual for Terry Norwood

Syrup making, in addition to being a sideline business on Terry Norwood's Mississippi farm, has over the years also been something of a social event, he says, with people dropping in to watch and talk.  “Some of the biggest tales you’d ever hear have been told by folks sitting around under the trees while syrup is being cooked,” he says. He sells the sweet treat locally, and ships it nationally and internationally.
