I'm not sure about the process used to mill sorghum, but it appears to include crushing the sorghum and boiling the juice. Sorghum was processed this way to create a syrup, which was used, I think, as a sweetener. A website offering sorghum syrup for sale says "Sorghum syrup is mild and can be eaten alone or on biscuits, rolls, and toast. It is also good in baked beans, barbecue sauce, gingerbread, popcorn balls, cookies, pies, and cakes."
