Softening Hardened Brown Sugar

To soften brown sugar, place it in a microwave-safe container, covered loosely with a wet (but not dripping) paper towel.  Set the microwave on high, and check the sugar every 15 to 30 seconds.  Microwave-softened sugar hardens as it cools, so microwave only the amount of sugar you need. 

*To keep brown sugar soft:  Cut an apple in half and place in a plastic sandwich bag, leaving it partially open, and place in your container of brown sugar.
