I don't use a lot of Brown Sugar and I've always had trouble keeping it from getting rock hard no matter how air tightly I had it sealed up after opening a box. So this homemade version will really work out nicely for me.
I can make it up fresh for a recipe even!

one to fill the jar

but soon it will blend in completely
I found this cool old Mason Jar at an Antique store yesterday that will work perfectly
for storing the Brown Sugar and keep it from drying out.
I think this would be a fun project with kids helping. I used the fork to stir at first but then got in there with my hands and it mixed the molasses in much more quickly. Little fingers would love that!
|Floydy helped with the photos as usual. Not sure what he|
thought he was going to do after he rolled on the railing? DUH!
