    I just bust it up by hand if the brown sugar sets, but love the many suggestions!
    If you want dark brown sugar instead of light, I've read that it should be bumped up to 2 TBS per 1 cup of sugar, but I prefer light brown so I always do that The best part is that you can vary it to your personal tastes and get the best brown sugar for you!

    I always throw it out and buy fresh stuff. But that is rare because if you buy the brown sugar in a plastic bag it stays soft.

    I've used this method for years.

    You'll have to come back and tell us which method you ended up using!

    Wow, who knew? I also use the hammer If I wasn't vegetarian, I'd probably use a meat tenderiser too, but I don't have one!

    The hammer is therapeutic...

    For those who use bread, doesn't the bread get moldy?
    No, never. As the sugar softens the bread gets hard. That's when it's time to change the bread. I prefer keeping it soft rather than softening it over & over.

    I was gonna say. . . if you've had a bad day, just find some dried up brown sugar to pound. . .

    I would probably just dissolve it in a bit of water.

    Thanks again for all the tips. I put the brown sugar in the microwave on "soften" and it worked just fine. Now why didn't I think of that
    That's why I have my fsu friends to take care of me.

    Glad it worked for you. I remember now that I tried the microwave trick first on that brick I got from the grocery store. It went in at 30 second intervals several times, with no results. That's why I finally resorted to the paper towel thing.
