    It would be deadly on bacon, as well as a great replacement for maple syrup/corn syrup in sausage making too. It would also make a fantastic caramel, both solid and sauce. Imagine a caramel apple with apple caramel. My grandkids would go ape sh#t ballistic over that.

    I just had a thought (a strange and rare feeling. not sure how I feel about it). the Apple Molasses would make an interesting syrup for bacon cure. I may just have to try that. Starting another batch of bacon on cure today and we'll put more in the cure next week. yes, I LOVE bacon!

    I use concentrated fruit juices for lots of things, myself. I have used it for making Cheesecake and for making marshmallows. the concentrated flavor is SO easy to use for various cooking purposes. You are right, it is a great resource when looking for intense flavor.

    When I used to work bakery shifts back in the day, we would make apple syrup to glaze our strudels. Our method was similar, although we would sometimes spice it up to suit a particular situation. For anything requiring sweetness and complexity, one could substitute the apple syrup for the sugar(s). Sometimes, I'll cheat and just buy frozen concentrated apple juice or cider. I've done this with ribs, and it turned out great, but one has to wet rub them, and wait a few hours before cooking. In other words, use it like any other syrup.

    Apple Molasses

    Don't know if you would technically call this molasses but I want to try it and see how it would go with the BBQ. I just saw this come across my canning group and I IMMEDIATELY though of Q. Think about it. and think about an apple orchard smoke. You pork butt, apple juice in the drip pan, apple wood smoldering on the fire. apple molasses in the rub making it a paste. apple juice and apple cider vinegar to deglaze, then the sauce sweetened with apple cider molasses. oh WOW!
