This was on the Balling history page. The clipping came from one of the area newspapers from June of 1886.

My momma cooked with molasses when I was growing up. We grew our own sorghum.

I sent this recipe to my sister, she also said that she remembered mom and our grandma using molasses in a lot of baking.

That would make sense as sugar was more expensive and therefore harder to come by when most you guys were coming up through the Great Depression.

I have this cookbook which was originally printed in 1901 and read it quite a bit. Some of it makes sense and some of it is hard to make sense out of without the side notes because they did and used a lot of different things back then.

Its interesting to see what has changed and what is still the same.
