Hey Deb....glad I looked up brown sugar and didn't post it as well! I haven't bought brown sugar in almost 30 years. I learned this from a senior neighbor of mine and have passed it on to so many people. I also use Grandma's when I can, usually dark, never measure and literally turn it on and walk away. My mix master is 30 years old as well and has made a ton of sugar! The taste reminds me of those yummy halloween molasses candies from when I was a kid. Glad to see you passed this trick on, it's a keeper!
