    I used to make a hot drink by mixing it in hot water. I think it was only okay.

    Just out of curiosity, why do want to have molasses in you're diet so much? Does it have significant health benefits?

    It certainly does. Nutrient composition varies among different brands and types of molasses, but it is an excellent source of potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, B6, copper, selenium, and other stuff. It's actually more nutrient dense than a lot of whole foods.

    When I was taking blackstrap molasses in the past, I would mix 1-2 tbsp of molasses and 1-2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar together in a large glass of water. It was dark and sort of sour/sweet and kinda reminded me of coke.

    Lots of amazing ideas here! Yes, it's very nutritious on many levels, not just for potassium alone. I like the apple cider idea, and will probably roll these ideas into one kombucha/jello/molasses/spices creation. Since I usually have kombucha going, and the rest are shelf-stable, it shouldn't be hard to make this on a semi-regular basis. I owe y'all a bunch! Thanks!
