Sorghum was a popular sweetener in the south in the 19th century, as it was cheaper than sugar from cane. It is coming back as people realize their preference for the flavor. It is also knows as Appalachian molasses in some areas. Chef Ian Boden is committed to using the finest local ingredients in his cooking at The Shack restaurant in Staunton, VA, as well as in his line of sorghum sauces. This sauce is delicious on anything that needs a little spice, and a touch of sweetness. You'll keep it in your pantry forever once you taste it!
