Delicious, vegan sorghum syrup is the secret ingredient that gives the dressing a distinctive sweetness without honey or processed sugar. The flavor is similar to molasses however instead of coming from sugar cane it is made from a remarkably healthy, gluten free, ancient grain. Sorghum came to America from West Africa with enslaved people however sweet sorghum didn’t arrive until the 1850’s. For a long time sweet sorghum, also called sorghum molasses, was the sweetener of choice especially in the south but today only a few artisanal producers are making it. Lucky for us it has been rediscovered by chefs who love its depth of flavor. Nutritionists love it because not only is it packed with flavor, it's the only sweetening that has protein. We love it because it makes everything from bbq sauce to baked goods.
