Muddy Pond Sorghum Mill is a family operated business run by the Guenther Family located in the hills of Tennessee, between Nashville and Knoxville. It was started in 1980 as a "Mom and Pop" business that has grown to include three brothers and their families. Muddy Pond Sorghum Mill makes sorghum syrup or as the old timers would refer to as sorghum molasses. We make a fine quality sorghum syrup that has won several awards and is well known throughout the USA. What is sorghum syrup? It is a table grade syrup that can be used in the same way as you might use honey or maple syrup and is considered a specialty item since it is not widely produced as it once was. The sorghum cane is typically grown in the southeastern states and looks very much like corn while it is growing. Sorghum syrup is made by first, extracting the juice from sorghum cane stalks. The juice is then boiled down on an evaporator pan, as they do with maple syrup. It is boiled till about 230 degrees Fahrenheit, whereby all the impurities and water are removed and you are left with a beautiful amber colored syrup. Nothing is added to the juice or finished syrup in the process. We then cool the syrup somewhat and bottle it in BPA free plastic containers that a very attractive and reminiscent of days gone by. The sorghum syrup is really a food that was a staple in our country till the 1940's or 50's. American pioneers would make their own syrup or have someone cook their cane so that they could have a good supply through the year. Besides tasting sweet and wonderful, it is also very nutritious, high in potassium and includes several minerals. It is low on the glycemic index and high in antioxidants. In addition, it is vegan and vegetarian friendly, with no allergens and is GMO and gluten free. So, it is a great addition to any diet. Sorghum syrup is very good on biscuits, bread, cornbread, pancakes, waffles, hot or cold cereals, in drinks, baked beans, cookies, cakes, in glazes, dressings and sauces and so many other ways. It harmonizes very well with other flavors.
