That picture describes it all. You need:
1 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of molasses (mine was a heaping tablespoon! If you want dark brown sugar, put in 1.5ish tablespoons.)
And just mix them together! You can just use a fork. It’ll look scary in the beginning and you’ll think that it will never come out right. BUT IT WILL! Just keep mixin. I actually used my kitchen aid mixer and then a fork to get out super small chunks.
And then you’ll have fluffy and fresh brown sugar!
I even did the math – a 2 lb bag of brown sugar costs $1.83
and 2 lbs of white sugar + 2 tbsp of molasses costs $1.32
that’s 50 whole cents I’m saving. woohoo. That money can go towards that helicopter you’ve been eyeing.
Keep it in a sealed container … or just make when you need it for a recipe!
This tip was given to us by a kind blog reader, Ming! Many thanks, Ming! It. is. so. awesome. Kinda bummed I didn’t know about it before now! Well, now I know, and now all of you do too!
(p.s. a bonus photo for those of you who stuck around this long. just a note:
do not pour molasses into a tablespoon and try to take pictures of it all by yourself while josiah is eating cereal and not able to help. you will have molasses EVERYWHERE.
