Q:  Why does brown sugar get so hard and dry?

All brown sugar will dry out over time as the moisture in it begins to evaporate.  This can result in hard, clump sugar.  Changes in the climate can be another factor affecting the consistency of sugar. Even though the sugar gets dry and hard, it is not harmful and is still safe to consume. We suggest storing your sugar in an airtight container in a moisture-free environment. For long term storage we reccomend keeping brown sugar in the refrigerator or freezer.

 

Q:  How do I soften hard brown sugar?

The simplest method to soften hard brown sugar is to put an amount of the hard sugar in a microwave safe bowl and cover with plastic.  Heat in the microwave on high for 30 second increments until the sugar is soft.

 

Q:  Does sugar ever expire?

There is nothing in sugar that "goes bad" in a traditional sense.  Brown sugar will harden over time, but is still edible if softened.  The shelf life of powdered and granulated sugar is indeffinite.  Most retail chains require a 2-year best by date to be printed onto the bags, but the product will be safe to eat even after that date.
