When I found this site, it was like finding a long lost friend. After searching all the supermarkets and health food stores for real cane syrup, I found that California dosen' have it all. Growing up in Louisiana is a real blessing, we know what real food is!

A couple of years ago we had lunch at Laffitte's Landing Resturant in Louisianna. The salad we had had a dresing that was fantastic. We bought a cookbook by Chef Folse. The recipe called for pure cane syrup. We were unable to find any. We were told of Steen's baut again were unable to locate any. I went on line to see if you had a web sight and there you were. We just placed an order for some syrup.

I was raised on Steen's. My dad introduced me to the product over 35 years ago as a child and have enjoyed it since then. As a matter of fact only until a few years ago did I realize there were other types of syrup out there. I only wish it was sold in 5 gallon containers. Keep making it and I'll be there

I watch the Food channel, Emeril Live to be exact and he is always using Steen's Cane Syrup. Well my husband and I went on a mission trying to find this. To my disappointment the only thing we found was something called Alaga. This is not the real thing. I had been to Little Rock Arkansas on a business trip this year and thought if anyone would have Steen's they would. Lo and behold NO, only this artifical stuff. My husband and I have decided that in the very near future we will be making a trip to Louisiana to taste some of the wonderful things that we see on the Food Channel.

Enjoyed reading commentary from various users of Steen's Syrup. I live in California, but am a native of Louisiana with well founded roots in the city of Abbeville. I went to school at Southwestern in Lafayette with a Steen (believe his first name was Charles) in 1939-1942. As I remember, he was the son of the proprietor of Steens syrup. If Charlie is still alive, I would like to hear from him just to say hello for old times. Haven't seen any of Steen's syrup on the stores shelves here, they don't know what they're missing. Keep the kettles boiling.

I remember as boy going visit my dad at the plant and bugging him for some of the fresh syrup out of the faucet. It was the best in the world. I lived in Germany the past four years and like clock work my mom would send me two cans three times a year. I think it is best mixed with peanut butter and spread onto a slice of bread. Also everymorning i pour it on my cereal for that extra flavor. Thanks for the flavor

I recently received my order of your cane syrup. It tastes as great as I remember enjoying my grandmother's fritter as a young girl. Every time I see that can of syrup, it warms my heart. Thanks for having a product which is pure, preservative free, and minimally processed. Oh yeah, most improtantly the taste is out of this world. Please continue offering this fantastic product to folks all over. I for one greatly appreciate it. I was wondering if you are considering offering an easy pour container for your syrup. In me you have a supporter for many years to come. eaf

I have been eating Steen's Syrup since 1960. My Great Aunt Sophie would make plate size pancakes for me on the weekends. I have never been able to find the syrup here in the Washington Metro Area but every chance I get back home to Louisiana I stock up. I so glad that I found your web site. My Mom wanted the recipe for the popcorn balls and had asked me to look on a can that I had. I just sent her your site so I'm sure she will be making many more things with your syrup than popcorn balls. Be Blessed Llewellyn L Forbes

I have loved cane syrup since I was a small child. In my opinion, there is no better tasting syrup. When I go on vacations, I bring a bottle of Steen's cane syrup with me into the restaurant for my pancakes. I tell all my non-Lousiana friends about cane syrup and let them taste it.

I was born and raised in Abbeville but now live in Mississippi. I met this really sweet old man at a birthday party recently and when he heard where I was from he asked about the Steen's Syrup Mill. He went on to say how much he loved that syrup but was on a tight budget so only treated himself occasionally. So I decided to look up on the internet if Steen's had a website. I didn't have to look very far. I was also pleased to see they also make gift packages. Since I'm headed that way this weekend for a family wedding I'll also get my sister to pick me up a gift package for the new friend I made. My fondest memories of Steen's is when we'd get those first cold fronts come in during October. You could smell that syrup miles away. I think I miss that most. Every October comes around with that first chill, but no Steen's Syrup smell in the air. I still have all my family in Abbeville, but I don't get to visit as much as I'd like to. I really miss all those sweet down to earth cajuns! You just can't find a finer people anywhere on the earth! Thank you Steen's for the free downloads of wallpaper. Now I can put that up every October and just pretend that I can smell the mill at work. God Bless and thank you for a wonderful memory.

I FIRST NOTICED STEENS BEING USED ON EMERIL LIVE AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GOOD AT HOME FOR COOKING. I WORK WITH SOMEONE WHO IS FROM YOUR PART OF LOUISANNA AND SHE WILL BRING ME A SUPPLY WHEN SHE GOES HOME. I LOVE THE SYRUP ON PANCAKES OR BISCUITS; AND I HAVE USED IT IN BAKED BEANS, A GLAZE FOR HAMS AND IN ANYTHING THAT CALLS FOR A SYRUP. THE TASTE IS GREAT AND I HOPE YOU CONTINUE TO MAKE IT FOR YEARS.

I am sick, sick, sick of corn syrup (dextrose). It is in everything now, it seems. I much prefer the taste of cane or beet sugar (sucrose). I had no idea that cane syrup was manufactured. It sounds like a product that I might like. I am thinking of trying to make pancake syrup that is cane-based rather than corn-syrup based

It is nice to see the name Steen on a good product. I was born and raised in north Louisiana and didn't even know there was any such thing as Steen's syrup until I was an adult. My brother-in-law loves it. He says that is the only thing the Steen's are good for is the syrup. Maybe somewhere down the line we are cousins.

I enjoyed your site very much, it makes me even prouder to be a Louisianian. Great product, my family has sure eaten alot of Steen's Syrup! I am a Children's Author and my theme continues to be my Louisiana Pride. My new book (Soon to be released) is entitled "Acadie, I Remember 1755" about the deportation of the Acadians as seen through the eyes of a 7 year old girl. It is a picture-book that basically explains to kids "How Cajuns Came to be" and how they ended up in Acadiana. I will be touring all 64 parishes in promotion of this new title.If contacted by e-mail I am also available for visits & reading at schools, festivals, libraries etc. My Mother was a Leblanc and my Grandmother a Thibodeaux, so don't be fooled by my English last name.

I was raised in the South near a little town in Florida called Palatka. We lived about 10 miles out side there in a little community called Pinal (pronounced Pin -Isle) at a place called Stokes Landing. This was Mr. and Mrs. Thomasís Place. They farmed and ran a commercial fishing establishment there as well where I worked from age 5 till the age of 10 when we moved. The Thomasís had their own gristmill run by a Mule where they squeezed the sugar Cain every year to make Sorghum Molasses. I can only remember the good taste of that ďFreshĒ rendered Cain syrup. Iím hoping your product will help me bring back memories of those days long gone.

I ran across your webpage trying to find out how to make small batches of homemade molasses for fun. My family is from Texarkana, AR, where Steen's Syrup is in abundance. It was and still is a family favorite. So much so that when we moved to Chicago in the early 60's, my dad was very disappointed that we could not find it there. He consequently began a business of selling Steen's Syrup to stores in Chicago. There were so many other southern transplants like us who missed our favorite syrup! Thank you!

Reading through your history pages brought back such memories of my childhood. I can still remember the taste and smell and texture of chewing on a piece of sugar cane. My dad used to get gallon jars of syrup at the sugar mill in Montegut. They closed down about 30 years ago, so its been Steen's Syrup ever since. And my grandmother used to make the popcorn balls as a treat. I think I'm going to bake a batch of your Soft Syrup Cookies and make some of those popcorn balls so my kids can have some warm fuzzy memories too!

I grew up in Leonville, Lafayette, and New Iberia, LA. Often for dessert we'd put some butter or margarine on the plate, pour some Steen's over that and kinda cream it all together with a fork and eat it on biscuits or cornbread or Evangeline Maid white bread. I bought a can of Steen's while in Lousiana a few weeks ago and am enjoying it...I'll start looking for it in the stores up here.

I admit that I've been substituting corn syrup instead because I've never been able to find cane syrup, or when I can, it's so expensive. Your products are affordable and, I am sure, very good if they are endorsed by the master himself, Emeril Lagasse.

GROWING UP IN ABBEVILLE AND SMELLING THE CANE SYRUP AROMA ALL OVER TOWN; REMEMBERING THE HARVEST WHEN THE BIG CANE TRUCKS WOULD GO THROUGH TOWN; FEELING LIKE I WON A GREAT PRIZE IF AND WHEN THE GUYS ON THE TRUCKS WOULD TOSS DOWN A STALK OF FRESH SUGAR CANE TO US KIDS STANDING BESIDE THE ROAD.

My favorite store does not carry your brand but they have vinegar from many places in the world.They have expressed an interest and I will pass on the information to one of their employees. I will give them your web site and phone number. Do you have a special person who deals with stores or restaurants? If so please pass on this information. Here in Silicon Valley we appreciate the best the world has to offer. Thanks Frank

My husband was transferred to Denver in January of 1998. Of course I came along and I day by day I seem to miss all the little things about LA that made it so great. For instance, the way Abbeville has that incrediable sweet aroma during the fall when Steen's is producing It's syrup. We would all go for rides on our bikes just to inhale the wonderful smell. We are currently out of Syrup. Help!!

I am originally from Abbeville. My parents, Russell and Laura Gaspard, still live there and I visit as often as I can. I still remember growing up there and smelling Steen's Syrup from our house not far from the mill. I now live in Houma with my husband and son. We keep a can of Steen's in our refrigerator. It reminds us of "home".

I have eaten Steen's syrup since my early childhood (almost 50 years ago). It is the best I have ever eaten, and it beats all competition, hands down. Since my family has moved to Tennessee, the thing we miss the most from Louisiana is the Steen's and Cajun music. We still manage to get Steen's, never fear!! Hey, when you have the best product on the market, you might as well BE PROUD!!! Please keep right on making Steen's, the way it has always been made!!

I became a convert to Steen's syrup in my hometown of Houston, Texas. Now that I've moved away, my return trips have always included several cans for my family's enjoyment. This is my second order online and I'm happy that you have made the product available in this manner. I will be visiting my son and family in Munich next week and he has asked me to "please bring the Steen's". I must really love him because I'm taking my LAST can. Please RUSH my order as I can't bear the thought of being without it.

Thank you,thank you,thank you;after wiping away the tears of joy and childhood memories.Mama always had some of grandpa Steens cae syrup at the ready for us growing up.Then all of a sudden, no more?Well it happen to be that growing up in New York only certain stores had it,and when dad lost his job there wasn't a store in our nieghborhood that carried it. Dad would bring it home,from a store across the street from his job, but alas.Now that I found you,I can bring back warm home feeling I used to get,of course,I now can share that special time with my new family. Thank God,that the steen family is still around.Sincerly Ramon Alameda

She's already made a delicious gingerbread and some delicious popcorn balls. She tried to make balls before you sent the recipe, your recipe made a BIG difference. Personally, I mix Steen's syrup with peanut butter as a spread on sandwiches, it gives me energy at playtime. Boys need their energy. Keep up the good work!!!

I was raised in Hodge, Louisiana and one of my favorite memories is peanut butter and syrup, fried biscuits, hot buttermilk biscuits buttered and anything else that we could eat your syrup on. Unfortunately, since moving to Aurora, Colorado ten years ago we have had to resort to plain ole syrup that cannot hold a candle to your cane syrup. I am pleased that now I have found this site and will be able to order the real thing to share with my family and friends. Thanks for the memories.

As a native of Lake Charles I was brought up on Steen's syrup. Even in the 70's when I was stationed in W. Germany, I managed to get it mailed to me. I can by it at the Winn Dixie in Riverdale, Georgia, however, I've reached a dilema. I don't have two (must have) recipes. The first was one that my great-grandmother (Teat) used (from your cans in the early 60's) for gingerbread. And the second, my cousin Monica Thomas used to make popcorn balls. I don't know where Monica got her recipe, but she definately used Steen's. I have two children and during each pregnacy, she faithfully made popcorn balls for me. Please, please send me these recipes. I've be eternally grateful. P.S., is the a pecan candy recipe with Steen's?

I'm a beliver that women are more beautiful in Cajun Country and I think it's because of Steens.

My supplier of REAL cane syrup has dried up. It was a local mom-n-pop grocery store. Each Thanksgiving, the owner would travel to South Georgia to get "the good stuff". I learned, today , that the grocer's supplier died. He's still lookin' but hasn't found another. I told him I'd go online to see if I could help. He orders several cases at a time and it goes like hotcakes...no pun intended. I have requested info from ya'll and am eagerly awaiting it. I am about to become cane syruppedly embarassed. Please hurry. Thanx, Greg

Steens is the BEST! With Louisiana parents, I grew up on it. Steens is still all I want on pancakes, waffles, and fritters. My favorite cake my grandmother makes is a syrup cake with Steens in it! A couple of years ago I found a small Steens can at a flea market. The lady selling it said it belonged to her aunt, and that she had it as long as she could remember. I wonder if you have any history on this can, like when they were made, and for what purpose. It held 2 5/8 ounces of the worlds best syrup! Thanks for the info.

Hot <CENSORED> ! Gotta love modern technology! If any body knows how to ship boudin, you could make a mint on the internet from me alone (that's all I'm missing). As I read through the guestbook, I was amazed to see all the other transplanted Cajuns writing in to praise the fact that they could still get south Louisiana products without having relatives bring it with them on vacation (speaking from experience). I've loved Steens syrup as long as I can remember eating pancakes at my grandmother Myrtle's house in Breaux Bridge- she used to get a compementary case of Steens, in the cans, every year, not sure why. I never complained! Anyway, thanks Steens for making it easier to have a taste of Acadiana from far away!

I have two grandsons who have an intolerance to corn products. They become ulcerated throughout the digestive tract, break out in hives and a rash, and have mean and aggressive behavior whenever they consume any type of corn. It is extremely difficult to feed them and to give them treats in today's market as EVERYTHING has corn products in it or the container is lined with a material containing corn. We are very thankful to have found your site and hope this adds a little to the life of two little boys. They will now be able to have peanut brittle thanks to your recipe.

Couldn't get either in Palm Desert, CA. Nothing else taste better than cane syrup on hot biscuts.

A friend of my son's saw a small bottle of Steen's Syrup when they were on vacation. He brought that bottle home and gave it to us. I felt it was so sacred, I dare not eat it. Instead I took it to the next Steen Reunion and sold it at our annual auction. It brought $15. I still don't know what it tastes like, but I knew it had a great name.

Always saw the can of STEEN'S on the shelf in the kitchen as a child. Now some 40'years later I understand why it was there. Just down right good.On biscuits the best. As I grew I learn from my grandmother to use when making fig cakes. Chop or grind figs,pecans,orange peel,pineapple,add cinnimon,black pepper STEEN'S let simmer to super thick, make dough and roll real thin and place cooled mix in center and bake. Put fig newton to shame.

Thanks for a wonderful product! I grew up in Kaplan La, but attended VC (class of 83) and I remember the wonderful aroma of your syrup while sitting in class trying hard not to drool on my books while thinking of hot biscuits smothered in Steen's! I now live in San Diego but I am lucky that I can find Steen's at my local grocery store! Hi Karl (Jr.) How are you, it's been a long time!

Being born, bread, and buttered, in Abbeville, I have wonderful memories of Steen's Syrup, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Being a grandchild of Poon and Ovide Broussard, of the ledgendary "River Oaks Restaurant", it was very common to eat some of the best cooking this side of the gulf. Steens's was always on the table. I remember my brother Skippy, making a syrup sandwich, just about every morning. I also remember asking my dad O.A., "why do you call Mr. Steen ugly, when he isn't?" I then learned what a nick name was. Absolutely delicious memories . . .Why I even think there was Steen's syrup in my baby bottle with the milk. 45 years later, I gotta have dat Steen's. Great cajun cooks, know !

I grew up on homemade cane syrup in Slidell La. My grandfather grew sugar cane and made the syrup himself. Our supply was small each year so when Daddy John H. ran out, we bought Steen's until the next sugarcane season. My husband is from St. Martinville and loves the syrup on just about any thing (peanut butter sandwiches, cornbread, etc.) His mom always made popcorn balls for the bazaar at Notre Dame in St. Martinville and saved a couple for us. Unfortunately, we lost her 2 yrs ago and now I want to pick up the tradition for my church here in Texas. Needed the recipe so I called the mill and got your voice mail. Then went online and tried the yellow pages "products". Boy, were we happy to see your website. We'd bought the syrup assuming that the reipe was still on the back. Now we are in business!

Moma Hebert could make a pan full of popcorn balls and we grandchildren would roll them and put them in wax paper. Believe me they didn't last too long. This was one of our favorite holiday treats.

Growing up in Reserve, LA close to the Godchaux-Henderson sugar refinery, where my paw-paw retired, sugar can was always readily availible for chewing. I have fond memories of our lil gang with our kane knives going cut a couple stalks to bring back home so we can all enjoy the sweet juices. I remeber as a young child my mom making gros-pot (?? spelling) or fried dough and having a warmed bowl of steens syrup to dip it in. You talk about - you talk about!!! That was so good. We still use Steens, but the kids prefer the blended version. I really enjoyed surfing this website, it is put together very well and not over jammed with too much info on a single page, this is one of the best set up sites I've been on, hats off to your webmaster, it as good as the syrup is. Would like to get over and visit the mill one of these days with the kids, I think they'd enjoy it as much as I would. Also just courious, why is there no mention of the home town Steens is located in? Again, great site and great syrup - And ya'll pass a good time nah cher!

We heard about Steen's 100% pure cane syrup through watching our favorite Food Show - 'Emeril Live.' Emeril uses Steen's syrup in some of his receipe's such as Baked Beans and Carmelized Cane Syrup Sweet Potatoes. I could not locate the product within our area so I checked on the internet and e-mailed you folks. You were kind enough to respond to my e-mail which eventually led me to this site. I am ordering the product through this web site. I sure hope you consider distibuting your product in the Cincinnati area. One place in particular, Jungle Jim's on Route 4 carries 'special' products. I am sure that many other's in our area would like to purchase this product, simply because Emeril uses it and he has many fans in the Cincinnati area. If you visit Cincinnati try some of our famous Skyline Chili and/or Grater's Ice Cream. Thank you for taking the time to answer our e-mail and we look forward to using the Steen's Syrup.

My mother was raised in Oakdale, Louisiana and grew up using Steen's syrup. Although my sisters and I were raised in Texas, she "raised us right" and we always had Steen's on pancakes, waffles, biscuits, etc. No other syrup tastes like it and I won't eat any other kind. I wish the stores in our area would carry it in the cans rather than the bottles. It's the same difference as drinking canned Coke vs. Coke in glass bottles! I'd love to visit your factory some time!

I grew up with "Steen's",and there are no stores that carry your syrup here . My Mom would send me a few cans every now and again . Now that I have your Web Site bookmarked, I'll be getting my Steen's "On-Line" . I shared a can with a friend that has numerous allergies, and she can eat your syrup without adverse reactions because it is 100% Pure . Keep up the good work gang .

Here's a "recipe" from my youth: 1) Ask your grandma to make some real biscuits. 2) Break biscuits in half (buttering them at this point is optional). 3) Fill a wide, deep plate to a quarter-inch-or-so deep with Steen's. 4) Put an obscene amount of softened butter into the syrup (if your doctor doesn't approve, don't invite him) and stir like crazy. 5) Place biscuit-halves face down in mixture. 6) Eat this alone so you can lick the plate!

Just developed an allergy to corn and corn by-products (corn syrup, corn starch, corn sugar etc) so I am looking for new sweeteners and I may have just found some. Now all I have to do is find a store that carries Steen's products in our part of the country, so I can try it.

Let me share a "recipe" from my youth: THE ULTIMATE BREAKFAST 1.Have your grandma make real biscuits. 2.Halve the biscuits (as if you were going to butter them--buttering at this stage is optional) and set aside. 3.Fill a large, deep plate a qyarter-inch-or-so deep with Steen's. 4.Plop lots of softened butter into the syrup (if your doctor doesn't approve of this, don't invite him) and stir like crazy. 5.Place the biscuit halves face down in the buttery syrup. 6.Eat alone so that, for dessert, you can lick the plate.

I learned about your products from watching Emeril Lagasse on TV Food Network. Since then I have tried Steen's. It is delicious. Much better than the other syrup's on the market. Unfortunately, I can't buy it here. I have already asked for the catalog. Can't wait to get it. Very interesting site too.

I was born and raised in Jennings, La. There is nothing that reminds me more of Louisiana then "Steen's cane syrup". Every Sunday for dinner, my daddy would make pancake, (which we would tease him and call them "Rubber pancakes") and the only syrup we kept in the house was Steen's cane syrup. For me Steen's Cane Sryup was its own food group. No other syrup comes close. the only problem I had is I now living in Baltimore Maryland the only way I could get "Steen's" was to call my dad or sisters, and have them send me some...But now I found this website...I'm in "CAJUN HEAVEN"....I can't thank you enough for all the happy memories...Yumm, Yummm...I LOVE YA'LL!!!

I recently had a case of your blended syrup shipped to me as you just cannot find Steens syrup in California. It is the best. Try making baked beans using Steens cane syrup - yum! yum! I made them for a Church function, had to hand out the receipe and on my next trip to Covington had to bring back an extra dozen cans for friends. It's great. Keep it exactly as it is.

Which brings me to why your web site is the best; No one remembered that recipe after my mother passed away and now I have it. Its so simple, but so delicious. Now I can pass the memories of popcorn balling to my son! Thanks for the best web site on the net.

I remember going to the mill on a Thanksgiving Day during the the 1970's. My uncle, Robert Prejean, had been hired to work around the mill doing janitorial chores. My aunt, Margaret Sagrera Prejean, wanted to to make sure her husband didn't miss out on the spread my mother, Alice Dunn Sagrera, had fixed. Upon arriving at the Mill, I asked directions to my Uncle's location. I carried a plate of food and a quart jar of milk up the narrow steps from the canning room into the next level of the mill. I remember that when I found my Uncle he had just sneaked a taste from open kettle of cooking syrup for a taste. I guess that working around that great smell all day made him hungry for a taste.

As a young teenager I would sit on the trains parked just over the train bridge and eat the purple cane with a group of fellow that still reside in Abbeville. I can still smell the syrup cooking when I went to church just across the street. Many times we would sneak in the mill and grab handfuls of the sugar in the auger trays. Probably why I'm diabetic today. I wish I could bring back those days. When I lived in Tacoma, Washington my father in law would send us small cans of steens as we were unable to get it up there. To this day I don't eat pancakes without it. Thank You Simon LeBlanc

I just love your web page. I grew up on Steen's Syrup. My mother would even send it to me during my tour in the US Navy. I have had a 27 year association with the mill as a Boiler Inspector and must say you are the very best people in the world. I can say from experience that your product is the very best. One of my greatest joys is to get a loaf of hot french bread and break off about four inches off the end, and hollow it out, and then fill it with Steen's Syrup. Its almost like being in Heaven. My grandfather worked in the mill about 80 years ago. I hope my association with you lasts another 80 years.

My son came home from travels afar with an empty can of C.S.Steen Syrup from Abbeville, LA. That was 1965. I wrote Abbeville and bought a case. The best syrup ever. I'd sure like to know Charley Steen's lineage!! Visit our Web site at http://143.207.33.6/STEEN/ This old doctor is 77 and retired. Thank God.

Hey There;Great site. It was great reading all of the stories in this site. Most of them i can relate to. My dad is Cotchie Meaux and worked for the Steens for many a grinding seasons. I was raised on the great taste of Mom's homemade bread and fresh Steen's syrup. I travel a lot now and always carry a bottle of this product with me. Any time i enjoy it i think of Pop and the great times we spent at the mill watching him work. I do wish i could still get the tiny sample cans we used to go home with. They would be much easier to travel with.Just for your information Alaska snow and steen's syrup make a great treat.I really enjoyed the site. Thanx

I am a retired Air Force navigator from Mississippi who grew up eating molasses on biscuits, cornbread, and pancakes. When I was stationed in England in the late 70s, I had to rely on friends to import molasses from the south. Friends from Greenville Mississippi sent molasses in old-style, pop-open paint cans through the mail. This worked fine until a can popped open. I picked up a package at the post office and put it in my car on top of my helmet bag. When I went to fly the next day, I found my oxygen mask full of molasses and had to make an emergency radio call for a replacement. From then on, I was known in my squadron as "Captain Molasses". Needless to say, I had to remedy this molasses resupply problem. My inlaws in Yazoo City Mississippi came to the rescue with Steens molasses in sealed cans that can't pop open in the mail. I have enjoyed Steens ever since. An interesting conclusion - Six years ago my sister-in-law married a man from Maurice, Louisiana near Abeville. Ever since her father-in-law, Narris Duhon, found out that I like Steens, he has graciously resupplied me at Christmas. Merry Christmas to Narris Duhon and all the other good people at Steens.

I was born in Abbeville, raised in Baton Rouge by my grandmother, Daisy Steen, daughter of C.S.Steen.We left Abbeville when I was two, but I remember living next door to the mill. I remember all the trucks and noises, smells, the way it was. Just like the picture. And Vermillion Bayou behind. Wow. Takes you back.I live in San Francisco now with my six children,five still at home, one on his own and living near-by. My dad, Ben Morgan, lives near-by too. When he was my son's age he worked at the mill. We buy Steen Syrup when we see it in the store from time to time. One of my daughters is named Steena after my grandmother. My friend told me about the web site and I came straight home and dialed in. What a grin. Keep up the cyber thing and keep on making the best cane syrup in the world.

You did a great job on the home page. My fondestmemories of the mill were on those cold winter nights between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I would go with Mama Betty to the mill to meet Papa Al in the packing Room. He would give me themost incredible cane juice staight from the pipe that went to the Boiler Room. I also remember slowing down production because I would play on the scale that weighed out the drums of syrup andthey would have to reset it every time. I also remember my brothers calling me at Grandma Lillian'sto bring them a pie plate full of pecans so they couldcover it with LaQuite and have me bring it back to Grandma's and put it in the refrigerator for later.It's ironic - I'm sitting here eating a popcorn ballmade by Creole Treats out of Carencro, LA, which ismade with Steen's Syrup. See I've never grown outof my attraction to the flavor of Steen's.

To the West of Abbeville in the 1930's was my grandfatherssyrup mill, similar to the one in Abbeville. Unfortunately, the Depression of the 30'swiped out many small mills. So well do I remember the cooking kettle, the steel rollers to squeeze the juice from the hand fed cane, the special cup to extract that sweet liquid before it cooked, the crystal sugar we sucked on which acted as jaw breakers. All these memories, which matches the memories of Steen's. Cane came to Louisiana a God's gift to our culture and we did well with it. The web page brough so many memories back to me that I got lost roaming around my childhood, hoping to not come back. Good work, Debbi, I know it took a toll, but a nice reward was waiting when it was all done.
