Solid Sugar

Ever had brown sugar turn into a rock hard lump in the pantry?  If so, try one of these tricks for softening it back up.
  • Put the brown sugar in a microwaveable bowl, cover it with a damp paper towel and microwave it in 20 second intervals until the sugar softens.
  • Wrap the brown sugar tightly in aluminum foil and bake at 250°F for 10 to 15 minutes.  Transfer it to a bowl and use a fork to mash/break up any clumps.
  • Seal the brown sugar in a plastic bag with a piece of bread for a few hours.  The bread's moisture will hydrate the sugar without turning it soggy.
The best option?  If time allows, go with the bread - it will give you the softest, fluffiest results.
