    Thanks for posting this - there have been times this would have saved me a trip to the store. I am assuming this could harden just like the commercial brown sugar, so here's a tip that I always do and I never have hardened sugar. I put the opened sugar in an air tight plastic container with a piece of a broken terra cotta flower pot in with it. I use a piece about the size of a silver dollar for a 2 lb bag. It works great, no rock hard sugar.

    well now I'll just have to try that.. but I'm always making the sugar as we have a few grandies around the house and it gets used up fairly quickly with breakfast oatmeal and breads
