    How long does this keep, refrigerated? Sounds awesome!

      Hi Lynne, It will easily last for a month in the fridge. I use it for oven BBQ too.

    Many years ago we went to a chineese restaurant and had garlic ribs. I am sure I tasted molasses in them. Is there a garlic sauce recipe that has molasses in it?
