Corny Corn Wings

It was bound to happen someday that I would come across a wing that I didn’t like. This is the one. That being said I still ate all of them.
I found the molasses was too strong and the whole recipe just lacked the full combination of flavours.
The smell was not something that I could not handle.
Extra from my journal when making these reads:
“Smells horrible looks horrible I hope this works”
