Brown Sugar Storage
- Breadcrumbs May 15, 2013 05:02 AM
For years I kept my brown sugar in a Tupperware container and it did a reasonable job of keeping my brown sugar soft and clump-free. Reasonable but not outstanding.
I'm now replacing my old, odd-shaped containers and looking to replace them with with a more streamlined system. mr bc uses brown sugar daily on his oatmeal so I need a container that stands up to daily use and, does a good job of keeping brown sugar moist.
Does anyone have a T&T favourite to recommend?
I did find one on King Arthur's site but it seems to get mixed reviews:
I keep mine in the original plastic bag too. But in the fridge since I don't use it that often. It stays soft although not exactly 'fluffy'. I think it was those wax papery lined boxes that were the problem years ago.
The issue is it drying out. If it gets hard, a piece of bread tossed in with it will soften it up overnight. I have used a damp paper towel, and have even microwaved it to soften it up in a hurry.
The ceramic sugar containers have an unglazed lid that you soak in water, and that keeps the humidity up, like the discs do.
