    I made this ice cream and added pieces of molasses cookies to it. It was fantastic. This is one of the best ice cream recipes I’ve come across. The ice cream was delicious fresh and also really good frozen. Next time I think I will omit the crystallized ginger and only add cookies pieces.

    I noticed that the link to the coffee molasses ice cream recipe is broken. FYI

    Thank you!

      Hi Annie, Terrific idea to add bits of molasses cookies to the ice cream! Thanks for the tip on the broken link. All fixed now.

    I’m never without a carton of Crosby’s extra fancy in the cupboard. It’s a dietary staple to all of us with Newfie (Newfoundland, Canada) heritage. This is very good ice cream. I noticed there’s no salt in it, but that’s not a misprint. It’s perfect as is. And very easy and quick. My first custard-style ice cream actually, and it won’t be my last. I’ll be trying more of your recipes.

    I know your business is molasses, but I just had to tell you that I made this recipe with fresh squeezed watermelon juice reduced to the sweetness and consistency of molasses. It took a long time to make the watermelon syrup, but the result was fantastic. This was probably the best ice cream we ever tasted. Thanks for the recipe.

      Hi Charles, Wow, that sounds amazing. I have never tasted watermelon syrup. So glad you shared your version.

    I have been married 42 years and have been using Crosby’s molasses for that long, My boys favorite snack was Crosby’s molasses with bread, my hubby’s favorite cookies is molasses cookies made of course with Crosby’s molasses, and of course he uses it on his pancakes in the morning, if you have a hard copy cookbook would love to know where to buy it, never without my molasses in the cupboard. thank you Bernice LeBlanc

    Do you have a hard copy of your 2nd edition Molasses Cookbook available for sale.
    I would love to have it in book form rather than just on the computer.

    Thank you,
