How to Keep Brown Sugar Soft

How to Keep Your Brown Sugar Soft For Eternity

The Internet offers all sorts of ways to soften up rock-hard brown sugar: microwave it for a few minutes; throw in a slice of bread or a water-soaked terra cotta disk. These ideas are great, but this is my preferred method for keeping brown sugar soft (and for "rehydrating" it): throw a marshmallow into the bag or air-tight container! I think you'll agree it's the cutest of the ideas out there. Just be sure to let it sit over night so it can do its softening magic.
