A Single Suggestion: “The Brown Sugar Trick”

I read this in Real Simple this weekend (my favorite magazine!) and had to do some research…

Have you ever pulled the brown sugar off the shelf only to find it is as hard as a brick?  This happens to me all the time!  So, apparently, there is a cure for such a problem… several, in fact!

1. Put 1-2 mini marshmallows in the bag.

2. Put a slice of bread in the bag 24 hours before you want to use it.  Overnight, the brown sugar will suck in the moisture from the bread and be soft again.

3. Place the brown sugar in the microwave on low for 30-60 seconds.  Not necessarily soft, but malleable enough to work with.

I’ve tried the third, but I will be trying the first and the second sometime in the near future.  Have you tried these tricks before?  Did it work?!
