Poutine à la Mélasse



Poutine à la Mélasse is a pie with no top crust made in the Acadian areas of Canada.

It is somewhat like Shoofly Pie and Molasses Pie, which are also made with molasses, or Québecois Tarte au sirop d'erable , except it is made with molasses instead of maple syrup.

Like Shoofly Pie, the filling has a starch in it, which Molasses Pie doesn't. But unlike both, it has has the typically Acadian touch of cubes of lard in it.

Cooking Tips

Cubed, salted pork is boiled then roasted and set aside. In a pot, molasses is heated and when it reaches the boiling point, sugar and flour are stirred in, along with hot water and the cooked salt pork and vanilla flavouring.

This is poured into a pie shell, and baked with no top crust in an oven for about half an hour.

    Escargot had their heyday in the 1970s, when everyone ate them with garlic butter and bought the Escargot dishes for home use (but couldn't actually bring themselves to buy the slimy little critters for use in their own kitchen.) You may wish to finally try cooking up Escargot in garlic sauce in your own kitchen. Mind you, you could simmer golf balls in that sauce and they would taste good.
