You've probably tried all the tricks when it comes to preserving your brown sugar. Placing a piece of bread inside the container, or even using a terra cotta pot doesn't seem to help.
Rather than throwing out the rock-hard sugar crystals, crack off a bit and put it in a microwave safe bowl. Place it in the microwave next to a glass of water and heat it for about a minute.
You should have moist, grainy brown sugar that is perfect for baking or stirring into your oats!
Another storage tip: place an apple slice or an orange peel in the container with your brown sugar to keep it fresher for longer!
