About: I enjoy sewing, cooking, baking and using glitter as much as possible. Creating just relaxes and energizes me. I love that, making thing's is something I can share with my children.

This recipe is so simple. It all came about because I was out of Brown Sugar. Since I had all the ingredients…….why not make my own. This way it’s always fresh and organic.

    Here's a little clarification and thank you for your question.

    Unsulphured molasses is the finest quality. It is made from the juice of sun-ripened cane and the juice is clarified and concentrated. Molasses from the first boiling is the finest grade because only a small amount of sugar has been removed.

    Sulphured molasses is made from green sugar cane that has not matured long enough and is treated with sulphur fumes during the sugar extracting process. The second boil molasses takes on a darker color, is less sweet and has a more pronounced flavor.
