    Thank you Andrew for the “blast from the past”. As you have already discovered when your Dad and I grew up on the farm in Limestone Township a “mango” was a bell pepper and “molasses” was King Syrup. I am pleased to see that we can still find King Syrup in the grocery store. That way we have something to put on our fried scrapple….which we can also find and purchase. The package I have in the freezer came from The Jones Dairy Farm, Fort Atkinson, Wisc. And of course you can find mangoes anywhere .. either “variety”!! Thanks again. This article tempts me to mix up a glass of Brer Rabbit Molasses and milk. Who remembers that???

      Glad you enjoyed it, Uncle Dave! How much molasses (the real kind) do you put with a glass of milk typically? Sounds like I will have to try it.

    Start out by adding a couple tablespoons of Brer Rabbit Molasses to a glass of milk and stir. It’s like making chocolate milk using Hersey’s Chocolate Syrup and milk. It’s an acquired taste, so you’ll have to “find your strength” by adding more molasses until you get it right. Enjoy!!
