IS SORGHUM DIFFERENT FROM MOLASSES?

Yes. Molasses is derived from the juice of sugar cane stalk and is a by-product of the sugar making process. Most of the sugar is removed in the procedure, leaving a dark syrup, the darkest being called blackstrap. (The word 'molasses' actually means 'thick, like honey' - In other words, a thick syrup from any source).

Sorghum doesn't need to be refrigerated. It doesn't mold like maple syrup, and if it should crystallize on the shelf, simply reheat it back to its liquid form.

“Ounce for ounce, sorghum syrup has higher antioxidant capacity than any fruit or vegetable
except pomengranate …four times the antioxidant power of the darkest honey tested.”

QUICK HISTORY OF SORGHUM IN AMERICA

It was the "principal sweetener" for our ancestors as America was being settled, and a key part of our heritage. Besides being energy food for the settlers, sorghum made their foods more tasty, nutritious and bearable out on the trail.

A versatile product that grows easily and travels well, settlers used sorghum for sweetening drinks, making confections and flavoring meats -- but it's most popular usage was in baking, used in place of sugar. It's grown for syrup, most extensively, in the south-eastern United States, yet making syrup extends from the gulf states, including Texas, north to Wisconsin and West to Kansas, Iowa and Minnesota. Kentucky and Tennessee are the leading states in syrup production.

Today, sorghum is being rediscovered by today's nutrition conscious homemakers who are learning that there is hardly a food served today that sorghum will not improve!

For today's chef, sorghum is a nutritious flavoring, a seasoning ingredient and a sugar substitute, It is that secret ingredient that gives any food that delicious taste and aroma that spells H-O-M-E-M-A-D-E.
