BEST TIPS FOR BROWN SUGAR

This is the tip my mom told me about years ago, after years of me tossing the stale sugar.

She is originally from the south so I don’t know if brown sugar tips are regional or nationwide.

STEPS

  1. Grab the loaf of bread in the pantry.
  2. Take one slice of bread (whole wheat or white bread ).
  3. In a pinch a flour tortilla works (this is all you need to know about my baking skills).
  4. Add the slice of bread to the bag, box or storage container. Secure with tie or lid.
  5. Wait a few hours or overnight for the magic to begin.

  • brown sugar
  • oats
  • flour
  • chocolate chips

    Ahh how I love this tip. And Frankie from the Middle. Miss that show. The bread treat has worked for me on many stale BS occasions!

  2. I have to admit, I love my Pampered Chef mini-spatula. It seems no one has Pampered Chef parties anymore. They were the Tupperware party replacement when I kids were little.
    I love dryer balls and now their only shortcoming can be remedied. Thanks for the tip.
    Have a great week. Spring seems to be trying to arrive but missed the bus this weekend..rain!
