How long does molasses keep?  I have two unopened jars of molasses from last December 2009.  Can I still use them or toss them away?

Check the jar for an expiration date. And yes, molasses keeps for a long time, especially unopened. Even if it gets sugary, just pop in the microwave and the sugar melts away.

It will be good longer than that. I have some that is about 5 yrs old and it is still good.
