Cornbread, Molasses & Sassafras Tea
Memories of growing up now seem almost dreamlike - warm cornbread with sweet butter and blackstrap molasses poured on top. But then the past wasn't always so sweet: sassafras tea was banned in 1960 by the US FDA because the safrole oil in it could cause permanent liver damage. I guess Uncle Jim on his dying bed may have had a little too much sassafras tea.
