Molasses, Blackstrap

During the refining of sugar cane and sugar beets, the juice squeezed from these plants is boiled to a syrupy mixture from which crystals are extracted. The remaining brownish-black liquid is molasses. Blackstrap molasses comes from the third boiling and is what amounts to the dregs of the barrel. It's very thick, dark and somewhat bitter.
