How to Make Brown Sugar

In the process of making apple butter, we found we were completely out of brown sugar. So, we made our own.
  1. Start with putting one cup of sugar in a cereal bowl. (I have not tried this with raw sugar or evaporated cane juice but it is on my list of things to try)
  2. Then add 2 TBS molasses (the kids found this part particularly fun partly because of the way the molasses balled up on the sugar and partly because of the way molasses is spelled)
  3. Mish, mash, stir and incorporate the molasses (hehe) into the sugar. You will know when it is done as it will look like brown sugar.
  4. Use as store bought brown sugar. Store in an air tight container or zipper bag.

VOILA! Homemade brown sugar ala the Picklets!
