Where to find molasse in Boston?

Hi there,

Simple question: where to find molasse in Boston? I went to a couple of Shaws/Starmarket/Stop&Shop in Brookline and did not find anything. Some folks at Shaws even told me they never heard of that before.

This is for a recipe my mom used to do. Any ideas?

  1. Do you mean molasses (the thick brown sugary stuff)? If so, Shaws, etc. should have it - I buy the Grandma's brand in the yellow jar. It should be near the syrups (corn, maple, etc.).

      I have looked at 2 different Stop&Shops and cannot find corn syrup, which i need for a pecan pie recipe. Can anyone tell me a Boston grocery store where they've previously seen corn syrup?

    2. I'm not sure I'd want to cook with molasse, personally.

      Anyway, I've seen molasses/treacle at practically every Shaws/Starmarket/Stop&Shop I've ever set foot in.

      1. Whole Foods has a nice organic molasses...

        1. any MarketBasket in the MerrValley.
