If you would like to keep your brown sugar from clumping together and hardening, head over to your local grocery and grab yourself a pack of marshmallows. It’s quite fascinating to know how these fluffy pillowy sweets help to avoid your brown sugar from hardening.
Do you have a problem with storing your brown sugar and having them clumped together? Everything feels rock solid, and you are struggling to pick them apart. The reason why this hardening happens is that brown sugar hardens as its natural moisture evaporates.
Unless you have stored the brown sugar stored properly, what used to be a soft, fluffy package of brown sugar granules will harden into a dense brown lump you could break windows with. And that can be frustrating. So, just how do you avoid brown sugar granules from hardening? The answer is found in marshmallows!
Place 2 to 3 marshmallows in your container of brown sugar to keep it from hardening. Of course, you would also have to replace the marshmallows when they get hard. It’s common for households to have cabinets that dry out things, and home-bakers spent a lot of time trying not to crush their hardened brown sugar. So, this little marshmallow heroes are here to save the day! Their function makes a lot of sense too as marshmallows have the ability to hold moisture in nearly any condition!
