How To Soften Brown Sugar
Have you ever had a bag of brown sugar, one that you had never even opened and yet when you went to use it in a recipe it was hard as a rock? If you answered yes to that I am here to help you. I had that happen to me the other day. I was making a Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce for some ribs and my brand new bag of brown sugar was hard…..rock like….hard as a brick. I was really frustrated but remembered a tip I had come across to make brown sugar soft. I had nothing to lose so I gave it a try and it worked!
The tip I read said to do this in a plastic bag but I didn’t want to nuke food in plastic so I did this instead and it worked like a charm.
