DIY Brown Sugar

Brown sugar is definitely of my preferred sugar when baking and cooking sauces. It is rich and sweet and just adds that little something that regular sugar doesn’t.

Now that I know how to make it at home, I will never be caught without this trusty ingredient. I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to make something only to find I didn’t have enough brown sugar.

Not only that, I for one will never again pay the higher price again. Wow, the markup is obscene!

As an added bonus, we have found that homemade brown sugar does not harden like store bought. We have never had to worry about putting in apple skins or pieces of bread to keep it moist.
