This was nasty! I do not think that lemon juice and molasses go together.



Perhaps I am doing something wrong....



I'm not a fan of molasses, so I didn't care much for the taste. I made this pie for my grandparents, who also have a Pennsylvania Dutch background. They loved it, and asked me to make it for them again soon.
