Yesterday my mom brought me a brick of brown sugar. You could have hurt someone with it, that is how hard it was! She was at a loss as to what to do with it. She was going to throw it out but figured I could use it in a chili or something.
This was a perfect opportunity to try a remedy I had heard of but never tried. I used a cut piece of apple and added it to the sealed container. With in a few hours the edge of the brick was softening. It took just under 24 hours and it was better than new!
What a great way of pinching pennies! Instead of tossing it I was able to save it and save my mom some money. I am returning her sugar to her the next time I see her.
