How to make

Tip #1

Sweet, aromatic molasses comes from juices pressed from sugar cane. The juices are boiled to concentrate flavors. During the first boiling, light molasses is produced. It has a mild flavor. Full flavor or dark molasses comes from the second boiling of juices. Both are great for cookies and cakes.
