BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Molasses...?
Posted by: 374 (Guest), Tuesday, May 15, 2007, 5:28am
Hi all,

Last week I purchased a jar of molasses as it's a beneficial for type A's. So, on Saturday morning, I placed a dollop of it on my porridge and soy milk. Then I tried it...  :X Urgh!!! I nearly gagged!!! I managed to get it down meanwhile talking myself into it "It's good for you. It's a beneficial."

How do people eat that stuff? I thought being from sugar cane it would be sweet but it was quite tart tasting... How do you guys/gals eat it?

Thanks! Looking forward to some tasty suggestions!!!  ;)

Julieanne.  :D

AOJ--what kind of molasses did you buy? There are different types. The kind you buy in the supermarket (usually with the Grandma's or Brer Rabbit label) tends to be sweeter and a bit more refined. Blackstrap is less refined and has a more mineral-like, tart taste to it.

The only thing my mom used molasses for was cookies, but I'll bet there are some As out there who have good recipes.  :)

I use the blackstrap molasses mainly for baking breads and cookies.  If I get a craving for it on my oatmeal I will drizzle just a little bit of it and use stevia to do the sweetening.  I like a little taste of molasses, so if I want it to taste sweeter I use stevia.
I agree Molasses is pretty potent.  I like to use it because I know it is closest to it's natural state...less refined.

I enjoy blackstrap molasses actually but of course the fancy (sweet) molasses r tastier !! ;)

I use both but mostly the blackstrap since it's beneficial ... I usually drizzle a tablespoon over my oatmeal, barley (or whatever grain I chose) and u can also add dried raisins or other dried fruits to make it sweeter ... and/or a little raw honey ... very nutritious ...  :P

At times I will add a spoonfull of molasses to a couple slices of manna bread and top with a banana and or/almond butter ... it's a very filling meal in itself !!

Cheers  ;D

Try putting a tablespoon in some warm water or water and lemon. I drink it this way every morning in the car on my way to work. I prefer the organic blackstrap to the fancy. Don't care for the the fancy at all and I think the blackstrap is better for you  ??)

Blackstrap molasses on a bit of plain yogurt is 'da bomb'!

If I'm craving licorice, I'll usually have a dollop of bs molasses instead. It's high in iron, too!

Organic, 100% blackstrap molasses has a wonderful, slightly licorice flavor that is not overly sweet nor coying.

Please make sure you have a 'clean' brand, this may affect the flavor of the blackstrap molasses.  Also, blackstrap molasses has a much different taste and it is more nutrient dense than regular molasses.

So that's why it wasn't sweet, I did in fact, get the blackstrap molasses... I don't know if I'll ever like it though.... Maybe I'll try the idea with my lemon and water in the morning. Thanks everyone!

One thing I've noticed since being compliant is that my sweet tooth has diminished a lot. Most things are just too sweet for me these days...

Maybe why this is why I love molasses so. I also love licorice. Just thinking of molasses makes me  :D

I also really like molasses.  The less sugar the better!  I will agree with Isa, however, if you really don't like something, don't push it.  Either wait a while and try it again or just find a substitute way to get those nutrients...

I'm another one who really likes blackstrap molasses - organic, of course - on my oatmeal on winter mornings and a spoonful in warm milk before bed ... a special treat for Bs! :)

Well, I tried blackstrap molasse yesterday for the first time.  I can't say I love it, at least not yet  ;), but it wasn't bad at all: I thinly spread it on a slice of toasted rye bread and I found it worked very well as a sort of dessert at the end of my dinner.

I'm looking forward to trying it in different combinations to see how it works: I'll let you know how it goes ;D!!

I have used molasses to bake w/ before and all I can say, is dont use it cup for cup. If it calls for  a cup of sugar, use way less molasses and something else to sweeten things up a bit. If you use the whole cup, it will overpower everything else. This coming from a molasses lover.  ;)

that's my g'daughter Alyssa, when she was 9 mths old. I'm surprised you could see it LOL    I pasted her pic info right into the other one and it turned out THAT size.  :-/   But thanks for the compliment. I just love that pic............it's like she's saying "I'm cute, I know I'm cute, watch out".  And she is still a cutie. Has Paw-Paw wrapped around her little finger too.  ;)
I think she might have been the one that 'autographed' her sister's name on the leather in my car.  :o  :o    Still cute? Yeah, but wish she wouldn't have LOL

on my puter, I had to click on it, then click on it again and then click on the little orange sunset w/ blue arrows to really see it. Must be a way to fix that. Must have a pow-wow w/ the experts.  ;)

Hi everyone, just a quick post to say that today I added some blackstrap molasses to my usual pancake recipe and it worked really well! :D  It kind of gave some depth to the usual taste...Having tried the stuff as a spread I must say I much prefer it when mixed with other cooking ingredients... ;)
