Pure Sorghum Syrup

Sorghum syrup is a natural sweetener made by processing juice squeezed from the stalks of certain types of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) called sweet sorghum or sorgo. 

Sweet sorghum is grown for syrup or forage, whereas most other sorghums, commonly referred to as milos or kafirs, are grown for grain.

This juice is boiled down, much like maple syrup, to produce a dark sweet syrup similar in flavor to molasses without the bitterness associated with molasses.  It can be used in any recipe calling for molasses.
     
Sorghum syrup and molasses are not the same.  Molasses is a byproduct of the sugar industry.
     
Sorghum does not need refrigerated and it will not mold.  

It could "sugar" or crystallize like honey and to return it to liquid, just reheat it gently.

Sorghum contains iron, calcium and potassium.
