Video Tips from Marge

Whether your brown sugar is dark or light, don't throw out the sugar when it's hard—it hasn't gone bad! Simply microwave it on medium low, about 1 to 2 minutes, until it's soft. (Or, if you don't need to use the sugar right away, you can put an apple wedge in the bag and seal it overnight).
