Bill's Blackstrap Barbecue Sauce

Photo: Rick Lew; Styling: Sara Foster

Blackstrap molasses, produced from the final pressing of sugarcane, is much darker in color and higher in mineral content than regular molasses. Its complex taste, which is not purely sweet, makes for a more interesting sauce, but you can substitute the same amount of regular molasses in a pinch. Cook: 1 hour.

This recipe goes with Pork Ribs from Crook's Corner
