What to make with molasses?4

Posted on March 21, 2011 by ChristieTaste Tests

Guess what I received in the mail last week? Beerenberg Molasses!

It’s a brand new product for Beerenberg and good timing as I have been wanting to make home made baked beans flavoured with molasses and ham hock for a few months now – hubby will be relieved to stop hearing me blab about it and start eating it. I’m going to use dried beans and make it in the slow cooker.

What is molasses? It is a thick dark brown liquid made when cane or beet sugar is processed and is sometimes called treacle (in the UK, mainly). I have just found out it is an ingredient in gingerbread (men) – I can’t believe I didn’t know that!

If you had this jar of molasses, what would you make? Seeing as I hate wasting half-used jars of things, I need as many suggestions as possible to get all this molasses eaten!

I’ll be sure to update this post with links to the future recipes in case you have found this page after typing ‘What to make with molasses?’ into Google. (Thanks for visiting, if that’s the case. Hehe).
