TIP OF THE DAY: Brown Sugar Fix

A pinch of brown sugar is a delightful garnish on top of yogurt, fruit salad, cereal, pancakes, sweet potatoes, ice cream and much more. But it has a tendency to lose moisture and solidify into a hard brick.

When brown sugar gets hard, put it into a microwave-safe container and zap it for 60 seconds. The old-fashioned method, placing a slice of fresh apple into the sugar canister, still works; but it takes overnight or longer for the moisture from the apple to absorb into the sugar.
