  • Molasses: What does it taste good with?

    I think molasses has some great nutritional properties, but I've never had it in anything besides hidden in baked goods. What does it taste good in or on or with?

    A little can taste nice in a chai tea. If you eat rice at all, it would probably taste nice in a rice pudding (coconut milk or milk with pre-cooked rice [preferably refrigerated], heat over stove until it gets thick).

      Any kind of smoothie.

      I haven't tried mixing it into my liver powder drink, but that's probably a decent idea. I think I'll go try it right now . . .

        Personally I avoid it. I dislike the taste. They often put it into "natural" baked goods, but it is never truly hidden.

          EVERYTHING!!!!!

          Haha. Seriously though I love molasses. Molasses cookies, oh lawdie. Now I want to make some. :3

          I'm sure it could go into a tasty sauce for pork loin, ribs, or chicken.
          yay!

            mollasses mixed with some apple cider vinegar and a nice spicy brown mustard plus spices makes a really good tomato less bbq sauce.

              When I sear lamb riblets, I throw them into a large bag with olive oil, garlic, rosemary, S&P... and a dab of molasses. Not much is needed, and it really helps give the lamb a nice sear on the outside while keeping the inside pink. And for some reason just that little bit of molasses works well flavor-wise, too. I might use half a teaspoon to a teaspoon for a rack of lamb, split into individual riblets.

                My mind automatically screams BISCUITS and then CORNBREAD

                but I like the ideas in this thread, and now I may actually have a use for molasses again. Thanks guys

                  I use molasses when I make barbecue sauce! Most recipes call for brown sugar, but I prefer molasses instead. Tastes the same, I think.

                    Oats. It's got a very unique flavor and you don't require much. Besides that I would only put it in baked goods in small amounts.

                        I put it in my beanless chili. It adds depth and a hint of sweet.

                          ick, lol. read this real quickly as a hit of sweat.

                          i can't stand the stuff. molasses, i mean. don't mind sweat so much.
                          As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                              I sometimes put a glop into my coconut milk. It's amazing that way.
