    Buster's friend's Note:

    Got a craving for blackstrap molasses...high in calcium, iron & potassium. Got to thinking about the molasses horsefeed we used to dig through to find lumps of oat & cracked corn covered molasses to knaw on ...MMMmmmmm...Therefore made this big batch up for self-serve breakfasts while travelling on contract (& to know DH will not be looking for the super saturated sugary cereals in my absence - LOL). After thoroughly cooled, I bag in gallon freezer bags & freeze until wanted - I fill bags about 1/2 full & express as much air as possible before freezing. Blackstrap is a robust taste & I am sure a lighter grade would work well but not be as nutritious. I would also increase salt to 1 teaspoon if using a lighter grade molasses. The nuts are purchased raw, not preroasted if possible. I like to use sultanas, raisins, currants, chopped dates & figs, dried blueberries or cherries, depending on what I have onhand.

      Repeat until granola all toasted.

      Bag in amounts that are workable for you & freeze until used. May recrisp 5 minutes in 300 degree oven if it softens with storage.
