La Melassa

< 1 min

Here is a product of nature that is truly interesting and deserves a second chance. Molasses is the dark, sticky liquid that separates from the sugar when processing sugar cane, the tropical plant of the same name. A veritable iron mine (it contains 11 mg per 100 g), it is a valuable natural source of other minerals such as potassium, calcium, copper and magnesium, as well as B group vitamins and vitamin A. On its own, it has a strong, “iron-like” flavour, but you can also use it as is, in small quantities dissolved in water to prepare desserts such as the famous Swedish ginger biscuits.
