Well, another Christmas come and gone! The cookies are done, the baking is done, and finally kitchens across the world can breathe a sigh of relief!
Though you may be done with baking all your holiday treats, chances are you still have a ton of ingredients left over taking up space in your cabinets…at least I do! I have stuff I only use around this time of year…and now my leftover corn syrup, molasses, and bags and bags of chocolate are taking up space where I SHOULD have actual adult food. Boo to adult food.
While most of this stuff will actually keep for quite a while, I still don’t like having it around when I could be using that space for something else…so, time to purge!
I’m starting with molasses. I use molasses only for gingerbread cookies, but I don’t need that much per batch, so I’m left with a good amount at the end of my baking. Since I’m so burnt out on cookies, I’m looking to use it on something else…maybe even some savory dishes??
So I did some Googling and found nine excellent ideas for using up that leftover molasses. From side dishes to treats for Fido, these recipes are a great solution to helping you clean out your baking cabinet for the new year!
