What is Blackstrap Molasses?

Blackstrap molasses is a highly-concentrated, very dark molasses with a robust, somewhat bitter flavour. Like our fancy molasses, it is a pure product and contains no added preservatives.

Many people are fans of the stronger, more robust flavours and use it in recipes such as baked beans and gingerbread. In addition to its deep flavour, blackstrap molasses is recognized as a source of iron and calcium.

How can we use Blackstrap Molasses?

In anything sweet, like pastries, cookies or cakes, you cannot substitute Blackstrap Molasses directly for typical molasses unless it is used in small amounts or you offset its bitterness with other sweeteners. However, you can use a 1:1 ratio (or less, if you prefer) in stews, marinades, baked beans , BBQ sauces and much more.
