Can you guess what this bright red con­trap­tion is for? If you look at the stick in the gen­tle­man’s hand it may be a clue!

This is an old fash­ioned cane-press, which is used to squeeze the sweet, sticky juice out of sugar cane, just as it was done in the past.

There are a num­ber of fresh cane ven­dors across the is­land, so keep your eyes peeled if you want to give it a try, although mostly you’ll see folks chow­ing down on a chunk of cane for that unique, nat­u­ral sweet­ness.
