It Actually Works

July 1, 2010

Never to waste a thing, the hoarder in me kept a box of hardened brown sugar, whereas a more sane person would have chucked it.  Whenever I needed some brown sugar, I would have to chisel off a chunk and hope for the best, a total pain.  I’ve tried other tips like sprinkling water on the clump of sugar and microwaving it, but it hardly helped.  In Real Simple, I had read that a few marshmallows in a jar would help to soften the sugar.  Unsure of the science, yet intrigued, it couldn’t hurt to try and it cost nothing.  It totally worked, the sugar was as pliable as the day that I bought it.  Sometimes it works out for a hoarder.
