Default Re: The molasses method

Yesterday, I dumped the bucketful of nastyness out and cleaned the pot and trivet off. I had been skeptical, but I was amazed at the results. I had to give the pieces a good scrubbing with dish soap to get the molasses residue off, but they were pretty much cleaned down to bare metal. The old pot had a lot of pitting but there's nothing I could do about that, of course. I heated them dry in the oven then coated them with mineral oil. I parked them back in the oven (turned off) to cool and set. The pot has now replaced an old Tupperware flour cannister as my countertop utensil bucket.
