Interesting! I never knew that. I love that the article quotes Dr. Cate Shanahan--her book Deep Nutrition is life-changing.
[QUOTE=oxide;939989]Clymb.. I bet you can try the molasses-on-snow trick if you use shaved ice instead of snow.
For those interested, [i]The Little House Cookbook[/i] (Barbara M. Walker, hey look it's on Amazon) adapted ALL of the recipes in the Little House series for modern cooking, with lots of frontier food history in between. Excellent book. Here's a quick version of molasses-on-snow:
1 cup dark molasses
1/4 cup brown sugar
Prepare the pans of snow (or shaved ice). Keet them cold. Combine molasses and brown sugar in a large saucepan so the candy has room to boil up. Boil for 5 minutes or longer, until the candy reaches firm-ball stage (245°F). Rapidly pour the candy into squiggles over the snow and let cool.[/QUOTE]
You know, I think I used to have that book back when I was in grade school...I'll have to look it up again. Thanks for the reminder :)
