CHARSADDA -- The traditional production of gur, an unrefined sugar made from boiling sugarcane juice, is very popular in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Several districts including Charsadda and Swabi are famous for making gur, which Pakistanis use to sweeten tea and several traditional dishes, and also eat as dessert.
"Gur making is our local industry," Khyal Said, a farmer in Charsadda District, told Pakistan Forward. "We not only make gur for local use but ship it to other parts of the country and to Afghanistan."
"The gur-making process starts in December and continues through March," he said.
