“FOOD TIP” del giorno – Molasses!
Dark and light molasses are interchangeable in most baking recipes, however be aware that dark molasses will be more intense in flavor and slightly darken the final product. To reduce darkening of your baked goods, reduce the oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
Check out Serious Eat’s recipe for Cranberry Walnut Hermits! The spice blend of cinnamon, allspice, and cloves pairs well with the molasses, giving these treats an almost gingerbread-y zing of flavor!
