15737Re: [Distillers] Treacle
- Nov 1, 2003Thanks for that Austin. I take in that you aren't in Australia as I know I
can source both molasses and treacle here. I believe that there is a
difference, although I have tasted both and cannot tell the difference.
Basically molasses is sold in Australia as cattle feed and treacle is
available off the supermarket shelf for use as either a sandwich spread, for
adding to milk as a warm drink and also in cooking (cakes and deserts). I
have been able to also get molasses for human consumption at a health food
shop, where it is know as "blackstrap molasses".
Any other comments from members?

According to Webster's, treacle IS molasses (apparently that use of the term
is strictly British, since the accepted definition of treacle is an antidote
for a poisonous bite).
