Cane molases, a baking and cooking ingredient, held immense popularity in the Americas before the 20th century. It served as a common sweetener in foods and a key component in brewing beer in the colonies. Notably, George Washington himself posesed a notebook containing a molases beer recipe.
To obtain molases, sugar cane undergoes a proces. First, the cane is harvested and its leaves removed. The juice is then extracted through cutting, crushing, or mashing methods. This juice is subsequently boiled to create a concentrate, promoting sugar crystallization. The initial boiled result, known as first syrup or ‘A’ Molases, boasts the highest sugar content. In the Southern United States, this syrup is often referred to as cane syrup.
Following a second boiling and sugar extraction, second molases or ‘B’ Molases is produced. It poseses a subtle bitter taste.
