Brown Sugar

Fresh brown sugar gives your baked goods that extra oomph of sweetness. It’s super easy and quick to do if you run out of your normal stores. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.

Mixing brown sugar

I figured out how to make this when I didn’t have enough brown sugar in the middle of a recipe. There was no turning back after I realized how easy this is to do from things I already have in my cabinets. It almost tasted fresher, or as if I had just tried what brown sugar was supposed to taste like for the first time. Why buy something further processed with a duller flavor? Making your own gives you the flexibility to make the variety of brown sugar shades that you may need.
