I am often asked how to keep brown sugar from turning hard. This is tip that I learned when I was teaching Home Economics and it works like a charm. Not only will this tip save you time it will also save you money.
How to keep brown sugar from turning hard:
It is simple! Add a slice of bread to your brown sugar and place in an airtight container. The bread will turn stale and the moisture from the bread will go into your brown sugar keeping it soft and ready to use. This trick actually works quickly. So just toss in a slice and by the morning your brown sugar will be ready for your oatmeal or baking! Much better than throwing away your brown sugar too!
