So, what is melassi?

Molasses, also known as melassi, is a thick, viscous syrup that is a byproduct of the sugar refining process. It is made by boiling sugar cane juice until it thickens and the sugar crystallizes. The resulting syrup has a dark brown color and a rich, complex flavor with notes of caramel and toffee. Molasses is a popular ingredient in baking, particularly in gingerbread and other spiced cakes and cookies. It is also used as a sweetener in savory dishes like baked beans and barbecue sauce, and is a key ingredient in traditional Caribbean and Southern cooking. Molasses is packed with vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium, and potassium, making it a healthier alternative to refined sugar.
