San Geraldo was thrilled to discover miel de caña because, as he said, "it tastes just like molasses," and he had been unable to find molasses in local stores to use for baking. Well, I just looked it up, it turns out not only does it taste like molasses, "miel de caña" is molasses.

(EGGPLANTS AND MOLASSES)
Since the miel de caña is served in a large syrup dispenser, we had plenty left after all the eggplant was gone. But that didn't stop San Geraldo. There was, afterall, a basket of bread on the table.
Seeing the expression on my face as he poured the miel de caña over a slice of bread, San Geraldo said, "The bread is just a means of conveyance. But, really, it's exactly like French toast." He thought a moment and added, "Except there's no egg, milk, or maple syrup... And it's not toast."
"Yes," I said, "Except for that."
