How to Make Brown Sugar...

Making your own brown sugar is really simple.
November 2013, I learned how to make brown sugar. I really wish I had know this before I stored brown sugar.
What is strange is I knew in the back of my mind that molasses was added to cane sugar to make brown sugar. I just didn't know how simple it was. Add brown sugar to the list of things I no longer will buy & store. Thank you to Susan Harris Weido for sharing how simple it was.
1 C. granulated sugar
1 T. molasses for light brown sugar
2 T. molasses for dark brown sugar
Mix with a fork. 
TIP: I wrote the recipe on the lid of my jar, in case I forget. LOL.
Also, if you are not storing molasses, I personally think you should It is one of those items that stores extremely well and for a long time.

I like to share hand me down photos, these measuring spoons were my MIL's.


  1. Are you aware that molasses is a by-product of the process of sugar cane into white sugar? So that when making "brown" sugar you are returning the molasses to the sugar......

  2. Cherl, That was one of the things I actually did know, but hadn't put two and two together. Silly, huh?
