Sorghum Apple Crisp

We took a trip recently to Muddy Pond, Tennessee, to buy sorghum made the old fashioned way, by horse-drawn press and wood-fired stoves. I got a cookbook, Sorghum Treasures II, and it had a recipe for a fruit crisp. I worked with that recipe and came up with the Sorghum Apple Crisp.

Molasses can be used in place of sorghum, although it is much stronger, and works better if you mix it with a little dark Karo to mellow it out.
