Day 27: a winner and some brown sugar
Congratulations to my friend Lee S. for being the winner via random.org of my little give-away!
Let’s get in touch to figure out how to get this little goodie to your house asap!
Today’s creative moment comes in the form of sugar…brown sugar that is.
Did you know you can make your own brown sugar?
In the words of my mother “why do you make things so difficult? 🙂
To be honest, it was simple and was an easy fix that saved me a trip to the grocery while I was up to my neck in chocolate yesterday.
All you need is 1 cup of sugar per 1 tablespoon of molasses and a good fork. I actually mixed mine up with a mixer for the first little bit, but in the end found it was quicker and easier to just use a fork. If you do this and get little balls that look like an oil spill happened, keep mixing. That’s why the fork worked out better for breaking up all the clumping balls of sugar.
This stuff worked out great and tasted awesome! It’s not something I’ll be doing all the time, but sure is nice to know about in a pinch.
