Brown Sugar

I tried making brown sugar for the first time more than 20 years ago and it was a disaster. Recently I decided to give it a try once again.

To make brown sugar you will need white sugar and molasses.Pour sugar in a mixing bowl.

Add some molasses to the sugar and begin mixing.

Continue adding the molasses slowly; roughly a tablespoon or two at one time.

As you add more molasses you will begin to see how the color is changing and how the sugar is beginning to look moist.

When the sugar is as dark as you like stop adding molasses and just let it continue to mix.

Stop mixing when it looks well blended.

Store in an air tight container.

The first time I tried making brown sugar I mixed it by hand, using a mixer really makes a difference; just wish I hadn't waited so long to give it a try again.

I usually buy quite a bit of brown sugar when there are "super" sales, but this is great to know for when I run out between sales. Thanks for sharing!

OH, this brings back memories... we used to do this all the time when I was a teen. We handmade a lot of things in those days... the stores where we lived at the time didn't always have the things most Americans take for granted. Not complaining.... because that experience taught me so much.
