Home of Apple Cider Molasses

Our Humble Beginning

Once upon a time there was a small town  library called Allens Hill Library.
The library was home to an age old secret  that no one  knew about; The Pioneer Cookery.
Pioneer Cookery





In the cookbook there were wondrous receipts (that's what recipes were called in the old days) that frontier cooks considered cooking staples.

   One day John visited the library. He found this super cool receipt for apple cider molasses.


  He took the receipt home, got some apple cider, and boiled, and boiled, and boiled till the kitchen wallpaper came  off. He  boiled some more and got this fantastic smokey, tart tasting molasses consistency. And that was the start of apple cider  molasses.

Aunt Mildred's Camp Cookies

For a wonderfully soft chewy gingersnap cookie these are amazing!

Aunt Mildred's Camp Cookies

When Aunt Mildred would call my mom and ask us to come up to her camp to go swimming, I was more excited about these cookies than the lake!

 

 

2 eggs 
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ginger powder
2 cups sugar plus extra for rolling
1/2 cup Allens Hill Farm Apple Cider Molasses
Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a bowl combine flour, salt, spices and soda. Set aside. Using an electric mixer beat together butter and sugar. When well combined, add molasses and beat well. Add egg and beat to combine. Stir in flour mixture and mix until well combined. Roll dough into balls approximately 3/4" in diameter. Put some sugar in a shallow bowl or plate and roll balls until coated. Place balls on greased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes rotating the trays after 5 minutes. Cookies will be cracked on top and slightly puffy; don’t over-bake (or you’ll get gingersnaps). Transfer to wire rack and let cool. Makes 6 dozen.
