I used to be able to buy cane syrup (Cane Brake Brand) at the Winn Dixie but they have shut all their stores in my area.  Can only get Log Cabin, etc. at the store now and it ain't even close!  Do any of y'all know where I might could find real cane syrup?  Thanks! 8)

When I was livin in Arkansas, my old neighbor was about elebenty hunnert years old, and made syrup each and every is his definitions of stages of mo-lasses

Light molasses comes from the first boiling of the sugar cane syrup.Golden in color and mild in flavor.It is popular as pancake syrup.

Dark molassed comes from a second boiling and is darker,thicker and less sweet than light molasses.This kind of molasses is generally used in recipes like gingerbrea,baked beans,etc.

Light and dark molasses are interchangeable in recipes,although dark molasses provides more robust flavor.

The third boiling results in blackstrap molasses.This very thick,dark and somewhat bitter molasses is generally found in health food stores or used in cattle feed.

Ain't it funny how the same things are called something different across the country :D

     My Great uncle John used to make molasses, just barely remember him doing it, used a horse to turn the mill and cooked it down in a copper pan.  His old mill, pan and all used to be piled up at his old home place, don't know if it is still there or not.  Probably not but It would be an adventure to go back and see.  My dad used to say that the molasses had a better flavor if the cook didn't chew tobacco.  It seems as tho someone had to keep working it back and forth in the pan untill it reached the right consistency.  Didn't want it to scorch either.
     I love Molasses, good molasses like cktate talked about.  Never thought of trying it on saugage, will have to give that a try.  sounds good.  Cornbread or biscuts, you bet.  One of the farm supply stores here carries a line of it, not sure where it is made.  A lot more expensive now than when I was a kid.  The stuff they carry in the grocery store isn't hardly worth carrying home,  The watered down version.  I think it is like Grits, you have to develope a taste for it.
     When I was a kid you could have anything you wanted for breakfast as long as it was what Momma put on the table, There was caro syrup and Molasses both and some kind of Jelly, I kinda leaned toward the Molasses.  We don't cook breakfasts like that anymore, just on special occasions.
