Once again the BTD has "given selflessly" to whoever pays attention and listen.  I read that Black Strap Molassses was a "high beneficial" for A's.  But......my "perception" of Molasses was "Slow As Molasses......"  so how well can it work?  A misconception to say the least.  I bought a bottle of it and it was very liquid before I refrigerated it.  Then it lived up to its name.  Well, a little further research and I found that it is a good, no make that great, source of iron.  I've taken iron supplements in the past and I guess they worked OK.  But this is a natural source and its a little gentler on the system from what I read.  

I hope that all Blood Types can benefit from this but right now I only know about A's.

For those of you who buy a bottle of molasses I recommend putting it in another container right away as every time I pour some from the bottle onto a teaspoon some of it spills over the side of the bottle and it is very sticky.........

Regards,

Joy

I've been putting it in my Spelt bread, rolls and pizza crusts and on my morning Oatmeal.  I'm going to try my mothers old fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Molasses cookies some fine day.  It's just another way to do away with some sugar, which I've always cut back about 25% on and no one has missed it.  Hopefully, gradually, I can use more molasses and honey and the sort and even less sugar.

I usually drizzle 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses over my moning oatmeal.  It's one of my favorite sweeteners that I use daily for the taste and for the added benefical iron supplementation as suggested in ER.  Most sweeteners have negligible mineral content, but molasses--especially dark, unsulphered molasses is an exception.

I used to find that molasses had nice childhood memories in that the horses were fed with it in the mix. Then I found that the smell etc was much too strong. But I've now found an organic brand which is-well-sweet as pie, and because I am working on iron levels (being a blood donor, they test it every time), I find many ways to use my new love of molasses. ie in coffee (sorry O's), in turkey stew (sorry vegetarians), and on muesli (home crafted with all the separate goodies from the organic shop).
Molasses rocks!

I noticed Alia's mention of 'unsulphured' molasses and wonder is it the sulphur that makes it oh so strong and as Isa so aptly puts it:

"iiirrxxxx the smell..... and then the taste ...bääääääääääääääääääääää!!!!!"

Do you put it in the refigerator I don't. The bottle that I buy doesn't say so.

I have it with Soya Milk and a tablespoon of blkstrap once a week. It tastes excellent to me.

I feel the same way about cod liver oil -can't stand the stuff.

I get the Tree of Life brand of molasses.  Yes, I do refrigerate it because of the warm climate.

I've been looking on typebase to find the difference between molasses and blackstrap molasses and have come away a little confused.There's the 1st 2nd and 3rd boilings but how do you tell which one you have bought? the one I am currently using is called Willowvale Organic Molasses from South America, but it is so delightfully palatable that I am starting to think that it does not have all the mineral loadings of true blackstrap.In fact I would call it black treacle.For those of you with subcontinental Indian heritage, would it be the same as jaggery?Despite the blackness of the product, I'm realizing that the word blackstrap might in fact be very important.

Yes Jenny, it is very important,
common molass has less iron and nearly no calcium, so balckstrap molass is far better for minerals thant other sweeteners. It needs tw teaspoon a day to have your iron and calcoium as two milk glasses (better absorbed for As and Os).

Enjoy it !

ok. back I go to the fragrant (?) horse feed! But it sure is worth it, especially for A's- who have problems getting enough iron in our diet in the way that most 'experts' want us to ( ie by red meat, more red meat).
Just recappping -- beans, lentils, figs, brown rice,blackstrap.

Barbados molasses is made from the first pressing of sugarcane.  It's lighter in color and more delicate than blackstrap molasses.  

Unsulfered or blackstrap molasses is made from the last pressing of the sugarcane.  It's the darkest, most nutritious, and most intensely flavored.  My bottle of Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Molasses states it contains 15% iron.

Blackstrap molasses . . . mmmmmm!!

Later this fall I'll see if I can convert my mom's recipe for molasses cookies to something resembling compliancy, and then I'll share it here. It's a very old recipe, with an ingredient list that used to read "piece of butter the size of a fist" and so on. My mom always made those cookies with blackstrap, and the whole house smelled delicious for days on end. The cookies got better with age too. Yummy!

Back during our school days, my brothers and I could trade those cookies for anything we wanted. Toys, whole lunches, caps, books . . . no kidding. They were that good!

That molasses cookie recipe sounds like it made a big hit in your neighborhood.


We await the revised recipe......

It's going to take some doing, mainly because there's a TON of sugar in these things on top of the molasses.

I think this is a very old cake recipe that got turned into one for cookies. I remember reading that cookies came about as 'tests' for cake back in the old days--a cook would put a little dollop of cake batter on a tray and bake it to see how it would come out. Mom's molasses cookies are very cakelike--they are soft, rise fairly high and have a fine crumb. They are also frosted with just a little bit of icing that is put on when they're hot and melts to make a thick glaze. They are very pretty cookies, dark brown with the tan-colored glazed spot on top.

Once fall gets here and the cooler weather sets in, I'll try some batches and let you know how they come out. Any winning compliant recipe will get posted, for sure.

I seem to remember reading that one type of molasses was okay for O's, but not the other. Can anyone tell me which is which.

maybe you mean the blackstrap ones?
those contain more iron than the normal ones, I think.

lola, do you mean that O's shouldn't eat the blackstrap molasses? And are we not supposed to get extra iron?

Hi Italybound,

No, blackstrap molasses is neutral for O's...both secretor and non.

Enjoy.

Hello everyone!
I was on the mountain during the past days ...
Now I 'm returned to home and I had seen a lot of good new info here on the BTD Forum!

About blackstrap molasses:
I've just recived 1 bottle of PURE BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES 100% NATURAL ...
It's VERY DARK and its smell is very intense!
The kind man who gave it to me, told me to use 2-4 tablespoon  daily in 1 liter of water ( + 1/2 lemon, if I want)...as a powerful and natural integration of IRON, CALCIUM, POTASSIUM & MAGNESIUM...

I know that blackstrap molasses is beneficial x type A ( and so I'll give 1/2 bottle to my dear Dad, the only A in the family! He has hypertension and I told him to eat BTD A! I hope he'll follow my advise...! )
But CAN I USE THIS GENUINE BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES x MYSELF, TYPE 0 -?
Ciao Ciao!
