Amish Cornbread (always good with molasses)
Homemade molasses-infused gingersnaps!

About some some sorghum brownies?
That doesn't sound as appealing as about some molasses brownies? I plead guilty to kind of using the two terms interchangeably. Molasses is ultimately made from sugar cane, whereas sorghum is made from, well, sorghum, a cane that is well suited for the southern USA and is usually harvested in the autumn.
Now, you can use the two ingredients interchangeable generally, but you do get a richer, deeper flavor with sorghum. That seems to be the consensus. Then there is also a blend of the two which is "sorghum molasses."
There is a great article about southern sorghum in the Huffington Post along with some recipes, see here.
Here are some related recipes from Amish365:

Ethridge, Tennessee - Amish Center of the South, this is where a lot of Amish sorghum is grown!
So this week's product from The Amish Buggy is sorghum. Pure, Amish-made sorghum molasses, a blend of the two. You get a deep, rich flavor that is so, so, so, so good. I just spooned some onto two biscuit halves and WOW it was good. I will definitely be using this sorghum molasses on about everything I can until it runs out. This is good, good stuff harvest and packed by an Amish family in Illinois. If you would like to try and buy some of this liquid gold yourself, use my affiliate link here.

So excited to read these recipes-- I was in Etheridge this year during Molasses making season and was so impressed to see
how the families all work together to make the sorghum.. So needless to say- i bought some while it was still hot!
Yum, sounds like you got some good, fresh stuff!
I enjoy you column do have trouble getting to the recipe,but that cause I'm not good on the computer. you need to have your folks keep records. you aren't interested in history of the family now,but when it's to late then you'll wish you had paid more attention.I'm bumping eighty and I can think of lots of things i wish i had ask my folks. my sister-in-law said the same thing when we are young and foolish we could care less. now it's to late.
