I bought blackstrap molasses yesterday so I could taste whether there's a difference between it and the regular molasses I usually buy.  The blackstrap molasses does indeed leave a bitter lingering tatse on my tongue - not pleasant.  At first it tastes just like regular molasses, but a bit salty as well, and then the bitterness kicks in and goes on and on.  It's not as nasty as a tasting strip, and I imagine I'll have some uses for it, but not for sweetening tea or eating off a spoon!

I'm a mild taster and although Barbardos molasses tastes tolerable, I find blackstrap a bit too strong and bitter/burnt.  I don't use molasses very often, sometimes in baking and I mix it with other sweeteners like cooked down pureed dried fruit.  I actually prefer honey over molasses.  Not fond of any sweeteners that have strong flavors. Don't like stevia either.  And it's funny because molasses smells like it should taste delicious....It just doesn't taste like I expect it should.

I like it in the right context with other dark, earthy flavors. Perfect for ginger snaps, awful for pecan sandies.

I like to mix it into a glass of soy milk - to me that has a similar flavor profile to a frappa-lappa iced coffee. That sweet/bitter thing going on... Yum...

I am a taster and I like it. It is a very mild sweetener. 1/2 a tsp to 1 tsp is just enough to give me a boost of energy w/o the craving typical to sugar and honey.

I don't like blackstrap molasses.  It's sweet but the bitterness ruins it for me.  Yes, that taste lasts a looooong time!  I'm fine with regular molasses.  I used to like it in coffee, though I no longer drink coffee.  The only thing I use molasses for now is gingerbread (non-wheat of course),

Geeze, Ruth, you're reading my mind. I was trying to figure out a soy/teriyaki sauce substitute. Would you share the recipe, please?

Averno,

I'm not ruthiegirl, but there are 2 versions in the archives. Maybe ruthie will tell us which one she uses and why that one over the other one.

1 Tbsp. blackstrap molasses
1 Tbsp. water
1 tsp. sea salt
Makes 2 Tbsp. soy sauce

1 cup hot water
1 Tbsp. blackstrap molasses
1 tsp. salt
Makes 1 cup soy sauce


Sirach 37:27
For not every food is good for everyone, nor is everything suited to every taste.

I use the one with the full cup of water. I often will add salt and molasses to broth, along with spices such as garlic and ginger, rather than making up "soy sauce" and adding that to a sauce. I rarely measure anything carefully.

The version that calls for equal amounts of water and molasses is VERY strong tasting, syrupy thick, and I honestly can't see using it by itself for anything.
