Mix molasses with some butter or margarine with a fork and put on whole grain toast or on a biscuit. Marvelous! I have eaten this since I was a youngster.
I like mixing a banana, almond or coconut milk, and a tablespoon or two of Blackstrap Molasses in a blender. If I have grated coconut, that adds a nice flavor, too. Easy and delicious!
I find one of the most effective ways to take crude BSM is to dissolve or melt 1 teaspoonful (7 gms) in half a cup of hot water and add enough cold water to make it no hotter than one can bear to put their finger in. If symptoms are severe take this on rising, before each meal and last thing at night. This will enable the body to easily absorb all the minerals available in the molasses and to help overcome many ailments. (You may find that the dilution is similar to the biochem tissue salts, eg. 6x potency. ) Do not add refined white sugar, this is acid forming which is undesirable, and do not put it in tea as the tannin inhibits the absorption of iron. If this strength is not tolerated, eg gas, or a sensitive stomach the dose should be made weaker and taken more frequently through the day.
I would suggest taking crude BSM for an absolute minimum of 8 weeks consecutive treatment. I have only been using it for two and feel more energetic. I am treating a problem with my nails and candida and rheumatism plus menopause...etc.etc.etc.
Will keep you posted on improvement. Good luck to all of you who are using crude BSM and don't give up too soon.
WARNING! NOT RECOMMENDED IF YOU SUFFER WITH DIABETES!
I have been taking molassess mixed with organic coconut oil - delicious. My son even will eat it this way.
Try putting a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses in your pancakes. Another suggestion is to put some in coconut milk.
I make a hot drink at work using 1 Tbl blackstrap molasses and hot water... I love it. I wouldn't take it full strength...Anne
I like my BSM as follows, 2 tablespoons in approx 8 oz of hot(microwaved 3 min)water with either 2 heaping tbsp of vanilla instant coffee or with a tea bag. Im not a lover of coffee but the coffee combo is delicious. You can barely taste it in the hot tea, however.
I drink black strap molasses in hot water with the juice of half a lemon. From my research Vitamin C helps with the absorption of iron. Before I started the bsm I would start my day with a glass of hot water and lemon... Now I just add the tablespoon of blm. I want to try it in warm almond milk next as suggested on this site. I'm drinking bsm for the myriad of heath benefits. Thanks for all the great tips here.
Molasses and diarrhea: I followed the advice given here a few days ago to take molasses during the day, not on an empty stomach and it worked, my intestines are working fine now! And now I know, if I am constipated I will take it first thing in the morning. A pity I don't drink coffee, molasses seems to taste well in the coffee but I don't like it in the tea.

I tried every BSM recipe and found that I still can't stand the taste, but I really wanted to try it for the benefits. I had a bag of empty gelatin capsules that I bought at the health food store(you can get gelatin caps or vege caps). I just filled them up with a dropper. It's a little gooey and it takes a steady hand but after 2 days I'm an expert. I'm starting with 6 a day and if it helps me I'll take more. It is kind of a hassle but it beats tasting it!

Starting using Blackstrap Molasses for Insomnia. Worked the very first night and then after. I take one-two tablespoons right before bedtime. I now get a full night sleep, no waking up in the middle of the night.

It gave me the rest that I really needed. I was just recovering from a bad sinus infection. I was unable to sleep due to antihistamine D. Finally, I realized that Black Strap Molasses had loads of minerals. Therefore, I took 1 tablespoon in the morning and 1 tablespoon at night. I slept so well that night, the next day,I was almost late for work.

When my mother suffered from low iron and had to take many iron tablets they were not much help. We were told it was not anaemia. She had to have blood transfusions. She remembered an old chemist telling her that molasses ( Blackstrap) together with half an asprin was the best heart medicine. She started taking blackstrap ( not desulphered) raw molasses. It helped her more than anything. I guess you would have to be careful if you were diabetic though. We also noticed that's for her stress levels dropped then her iron count did not go down so fast. Maybe the vitamin B12 in the molasses also has something to do with that.
