It is the ideal primal "sweetener" (if there is such a thing)
I use Brer rabbit brand in my milk and cocoa powder drink, sweet potato/pumpkin pies and on cooked butternut squash when I want some extra flavor and sweet.
I couldn't believe my eyes last year when I checkout out the side label for the nutritional information and ingredients.
While not an ideal food on account of the sugar content I do believe this is better than other natural sweeteners on account of simplicity and myriad of goodies inside.
Also it's pretty cool if you ask me to include such a historically significant, old-school condiment into modern cooking!
