Chardonnay Molasses

My reputation for adoring unique ingredients makes getting gifts for me a breeze. When my friends Brian, Pia, and Linnea attended the Best of the Blue event a couple of weeks ago, they came across three bottles of a chardonnay molasses. They weren't clear about what exactly that was - too many glasses of wine, probably - but they knew they wanted a bottle. And when they gave me a mason jar full, I knew I would incorporate it into our Thanksgiving feast.

I have no idea who made this. I know I won't likely be able to find this again any time soon. So, I'm going to relish creating some tasty dishes with it while I can.

Here are my generous friends who know me so well...

Thanks, guys, the flavor is amazing!


  1. you think it is chardonnay grape juice prior to fermentation and cooked down? i am fascinated by this.can't wait to hear what you make with it. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Christy, I think it's from the chardonnay must, but I'm not sure exactly how it's made.

  3. I found this recipe, which I've made not knowing it was "molasses" -
