Do you like molasses? When I was a small child having been brought up with food rationing Mum and Dad had this idea that a spoonful of molasses each day was good for you. I see from the label that it's rich in iron, calcium and potassium so they were probably correct. Dad actually liked it. It's one of the very few foods that I can actually say that I detested. I assume that if I tried it today I would still detest it but as I don't have to try it I have no intention of so doing. I have a jar of it in the pantry because I used it in a cake recipe a while ago.
So why have I introduced molasses? Well partly because I was thinking that my brain felt like it was wallowing in the stuff and partly because when I saw it this morning I thought to myself how thankful I was that I didn't have to eat it.
