Introduction: DIY Brown Sugar
Who knew that you could MAKE your own brown sugar? Argh... Im regretting all those times I've run to the grocery store just to buy some of the stuff! By simply mixing only two ingredients, now you can always keep your brown sugar supplies ample, and not to mention, saving all that green by not having to buy any brown!
Let's get started!
Step 1: Ingredients
For this project you will need:
White granulated sugar
Optional: hand mixer (I only used this initially, but found smashing down was the best way to break up the thick molasses and evenly distribute it)
For every 1 cup of granulated sugar, use 1 1/2 tbls molasses.
Step 2: Mix It Up!
Pour molasses over white sugar, and by either hand or by hand mixer, relieve some frustration by breaking up and evenly distributing molasses over the sugar. This took me about 4 minutes and I used 3 cups of sugar and 4/12 tbsp molasses.
You know you're done when there are no more chunks of molasses floating around. Ta Da! You have now unlocked one of life's greatest mysteries! Go forth and never purchase brown sugar again!
