Rock Hard Brown Sugar???

When brown sugar and powdered sugar go on sale, I usually will pick up a few boxes (of course!). A few months ago, I picked up some dark brown sugar. When I took it out of the box it was hard as a brick! I needed to use 1/3 cup for the chocolate chip granola bar recipe and nearly broke the handle off my stainless steel measuring cup!

Here's the best way to soften your rock hard brown sugar:

A slice of bread: crazy I know, but it works! Just place a slice in the canister on top of the brown sugar. (Don't forget to put the lid back on.) And in a day or so the brown sugar will be as good as new.

You might run into this problem if you stockpile pantry goods. Just remember it's an easy fix.

Thanks for the tip! I knew this works with stale cookies (my mother in law does it) but I would not have thought to try with brown sugar :-)
