  • What is the shelf life of molasses?

    I bought a gallon of unsulphered Black Strap molasses some time ago and filled them into pint  canning jars (air tight lids).   Am wondeing how long they will keep since I don't use molasses very often.

    Molasses should be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator or a cool, dry place. Unopened containers should keep for about one year, while opened containers should keep for about six months.

    That reminds me of a joke ...

    Mama Mole poked her head out of their hole, sniffed the air and said, "It smells like Fall."

    Papa Mole poked his head out, took a couple of wiffs and said. "Sure do, smells like we'll soon have snow !"

    Baby Mole said, "All I can smell is moleasses !!!"

     Grelo what I'm reading says the Molasses ferments and gets a distinct odor, so without a doubt - you'll know if yours turns.  I've also read it can hold for 2 years in a cool, dry place.

    I bought a really large container of molasses once and took several years to use it up. Never had a problem at all.
