How to Soften Brown Sugar

How to soften brown sugar

​Have you ever gone to use some brown sugar in your pantry and found it to be rock hard? Don’t throw away that sugar. There are a couple methods worth trying to bring that sugar back to life. The first is as simple as putting part of a piece of bread in a container with the sugar, then sealing it shut. It should be softened in a day or so, depending on the volume of sugar and how hard it is. The second method is to use a brown-sugar-saver disc, which are commonly available at kitchen shops. Soak it in hot water for 20 minutes or so, place it in the brown sugar, put the lid on, and wait a couple of days for the sugar to soften. You can also use it in a container of still-soft brown sugar to prevent it from going hard.
