How to Soften Brown Sugar

  • Need the sugar soft now? Put the brown sugar in a container and place in the microwave with a small bowl full of water beside it. Microwave for about 1 minute–check. If it’s still hard, try for another 30 seconds. You can keep doing this until the sugar is soft, but watch that you don’t melt the sugar.
  • Buy a clay disc or if you have a pottery piece on hand (from a broken clay pot, etc.), set it in water for about 30 minutes. Dry the piece so it isn’t dripping wet. Put the clay piece in a container with the sugar and seal. Check after a few days. Keep the piece in with your sugar for months if you’d like–will keep it soft.

If you don't need it soft right now, but it's starting to go hard, place a slice of apple in the bag and let it sit for a few days. A slice of bread works too.

Or, to keep it from hardening in the first place, store it in the freezer.

Thanks for the link! I'm going to go check it out right now... :-)
