Alegrias

Ingredients:
1/4 kg of amaranth cereal       
1/2 a lemon 1 cone raw sugarcane       
1 cup of water   

Directions:
1.–  Break apart the sugarcane as much as possible.  
2.–  Determine whether the sugarcane is sufficiently heavy by dropping a piece of it in a cup of water.  If the sugarcane does not dissolve and remains as a ball at the bottom of the cup, it is ready.  If it is ready, put it in a pot and add the water.
3.– Add the lemon and immediately stir in the amaranth cereal until it is perfectly mixed. 
4.– Before it cools, put this on a tray or any other flat surface and shape it with your hands. 
5.– Allow it to cool for only a bit more and then cut it into squares to have the happiness readily available.
