Don'T Throw Out Hard Brown Sugar, Instead Do This.....

When you brown sugar hardens, don't throw it out. Instead, put the brown sugar inside an air tight container. Take a single slice of fresh bread and lay it on top of the brown sugar. Seal the container with a tight fitting lid. Let it stand overnight and you will have sugar that is as soft as the first day you bought it from the grocery store!! Discard the bread and enjoy your "fresh" brown sugar.

MORE INFORMATION:
The sugar will stay soft up to 3 months before it will start to harden again.

    I liked your comment on using soft bread to soften brown sugar up. It makes me think of if I had to buy cookies for school or something and they were hard, I put them in a plastic bag and brake some bread and spread it around the store bought cookies. Yhey will also become soft like the more expensive cookies. emoticon
