How do I soften hard sugar?
By Mike from Kensington, CT
Sometimes you can soften it up if you put it in the microwave for a few seconds. I would try it in 10 second intervals to see if it works. I know it works on brown sugar.
Try putting a couple of wet paper towels on top of the sugar in an open bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds, check by gently stabbing with a fork and see if it is looser, then do another 30 seconds or so if needed. Don't want to get it too hot because it will melt.
Put a couple of saltine crackers in the container with the sugar. Also move it into a airtight plastic container.
Put one or two slices of fresh bread in with the sugar and seal. Works every time!
