Fake "Soy" Sauce

Submitted by:
I'm allergic to soy, so I made a fake "soy sauce" that pretty closely mimics the flavor and saltiness of the real thing. I love Asian cooking, so I was happy when I accidentally created this stuff. Yay!

Preparation time: 4 minutes
Cooking time: 6 minutes, maybe

Serves: n/a - it's a condiment

1/4 cup molasses
2 tbsp salt (I prefer sea salt) or more/less to taste
1 cup water


stir all ingredients together in a sauce pan, and saute until they are all blended together and bubbling slightly. Let cool and put in a squeeze bottle. It should keep in your fridge for a couple of weeks.
