Softening Hard Sugar

How can I soften granulated sugar which has hardened in the bag in which it was sold?

Softening Hard Sugar


I've had to do this trick several times myself to break up hardened sugar. Place the entire unopened bag of sugar in a plastic bag and close the top. Now take the bag and carefully drop the bag on the floor, first on one side then the other. This will definitely break up the sugar granules. (07/11/2010)

Not sure if this will work for granulated sugar, but it does the trick in brown sugar, put a piece of bread in the bag, just like 1/4 of a slice. It will keep it fresh and the bread gets hard, not the sugar. Replace bread piece about every 10 days. (07/11/2010)

Once you get it broken up, run it through a flour sifter. I've done that many times. (07/11/2010)

You can run it through your food processor if it's too hard to break up. (07/13/2010)
