Sweet Escape

Sugar for Podcast

Almost every person today uses or consumes sugar in their daily routine, but the question is where did it come from and how did it become such a popular commodity? Unlike most historic events, sugar was more beneficial for women than men. The route of this sweet substance, and it’s connection to women, is explained through out the podcast, “Sweet Escape”, by four women from the fall semester of History 102 in 2015; Emily Wilhelm, Justine Prout, Molly Enders, and Megan Edelman.  Information we required about sugar is from the article “Culinary Spaces, Colonial Spaces: the gendering of sugar in the seventeenth century” written by Kim F. Hall.
