Right here I have five cups of sugar in my kitchenaid mixer.
I added five tablespoons unsulphured mild flavor molasses.
Then I mixed. And mixed. And mixed. In total it was about six minutes.
And there it is. 98¢ worth of sugar. About $1.35 worth of molasses. For five cups. The bags at the store usually have a little over four cups and the price is between $2.00-$3.00. The savings isn't dramatic but it's there. Also, I know it's fresh. And, since I know the easy ratio I can whip the stuff up if I have none but need it for a recipe. Easy peasy. :)
