    We only have one choice here-Grandma's. Used to use Bre'r rabbit at one time. Unsure about sugar content.

    I like the unsulphured blackstrap molasses it has 11 g of sugar per serving and a whopping 600 mg of potassium, versus another brand I have on hand that's Golding Farms molasses it has 15 g of sugar per serving and 130 mg of potassium. The blackstrap is better IMO. I also use boiled cider, which I love! It has no sugar added and is apple cider evaporated down into a syrup. Great on pork.

    I like to use "homemade" molasses. You can usually find them at farmers markets or local Amish communities, but I don't have a clue about the sugar content.

    If you can find it get a can or bottle of cane syrup. steens is the most known brand

     it's darklike molasses but i thinkit taste better.

    Oh man, I love cane syrup. Being down here in the south we can get it straight from the plantations. That is gooooood stuff. Very, very sweet though. If you want a good sugar buzz just eat a spoonful of cane syrup!

     I just picked up a quart of good fresh molasses Thursday. I wonder if you could get them to flow through an IV needle?[​IMG]
