Over the years of cooking all kinds of yummy goodies for my family, there have been many times when I found myself unable to store brown sugar in an airtight container. At first, I would simply throw the hardened block of sticky brown sugar away and go buy some more when I needed it. However, over time I found this to be a really expensive way of doing things.
Here are a few tricks that I have learned to store brown sugar without using airtight containers. Using these will help you save money (and not to mention stress) from having to go out and get new brown sugar every time you want to use it.
Please note that these are all temporary solutions only, at most these solutions should be used for only three days. The best solution available for keeping your brown sugar soft and fresh is to use an airtight container and those ceramic discs that you can purchase at most grocery stores. (These discs look like they are made from terracotta clay, stop sugar from drying out, and will cost you around three dollars.) Simply follow the directions on the ceramic discs, and you will be able to keep your brown sugar fresh for as long as possible.
