9 Not-Too-Sweet Recipes for Finishing Up Your Molasses

December 26, 2014

Molasses is an ingredient that keeps on giving. No matter how carefully you think you've scraped out the jar, try turning it upright and returning a day later -- you'll see yet another 1/4 cup has accumulated. It's endless breadsticks, molasses-edition. 

We've collected 9 recipes that will help you empty those sticky jars left over from the pfeffernuse and gingerbread and pudding you've been enjoying over the holidays. And, best of all, most of them verge on savory -- in case you forgot, that's the non-sweet flavor profile we neglect during the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.

I like to put molasses in my Quick Cincinnati Chili. It really gives it depth.
