    It is recommended that you buy organic, unsulfured blackstrap molasses and store it in an airtight container, either in a cool area or in the refrigerator. An opened container has a six-month shelf life, while unopened jars can last up to one year. Heating blackstrap molasses by placing the container in hot (not boiling) water can help reduce its viscosity, allowing it to be poured or scooped out more effectively.
