How do you extract sugar from sugar cane or sugar beet?
You first wash the cane/sugar beet. Then you crush them to get as much juice out as possible. This juice contains a lot of sugar, but at this stage there is also a lot of water (hence why it is juice rather than a solid). The water content of this juice must then be reduced to result in sugar crystals. Most of the time this juice will be simmered on a very low heat, in order to reduce the water content. Eventually this will result in sugar crystals. However the sugar will burn towards the end of the simmering stage, so the solution is only usually simmered to reduce the bulk of the water content, but the simmering is discontinued when the water content is significantly reduced. At this stage, the water is just left to evaporate off by itself, to avoid caramelising the sugar. When all the water is evaporated off, you will be left with unrefined sugar (a golden brown type of sugar). Other types of sugar can be achieved by distilling the juice from the sugar cane/beet before it is heated.

How much money is 1 tablespoon of sugar?
There are 38 tablespoons of common granulated sugar per pound. At the store yesterday, 4 pounds ofsugar was $2.14, That comes to 1.4 cents per tablespoon. Sugar prices vary, or course, depending on the packaging and kind of sugar. Packets of sugar are more expensive, while sugar by the ton is cheaper. Cane sugar and common (beet) sugar are different prices, and freight usually determines which is cheaper. Specialty sugars like light brown and dark brown sugars or confectioner's 4x sugar vary both in density and price. So do cones and cubes. But if you're trying to calculate the cost of baking cookies, the 1.4c figure should be good.
