Brown sugar can harden over time, making it difficult to measure and use in recipes. But don't worry, there are several ways to soften brown sugar and bring it back to its original texture. Here are some easy methods you can try at home:
Use a Slice of Bread: Place a slice of bread in a sealed container with the hardened brown sugar for a few hours or overnight. The moisture from the bread will transfer to the sugar and soften it.
Use an Apple: Cut an apple into pieces and place it in a sealed container with the hardened brown sugar. The moisture from the apple will soften the sugar in a few hours.
Use a Microwave: Place the hardened brown sugar in a microwave-safe bowl with a damp paper towel on top. Microwave for 20-30 seconds on high heat, and then break up any clumps with a fork.
Use a Terra Cotta Brown Sugar Saver: Soak the terra cotta disc in water for 15 minutes and then place it in a sealed container with the hardened brown sugar. The moisture from the disc will keep the sugar soft for up to three months.
By using one of these methods, you can easily soften your brown sugar and use it for your favorite recipes.
