How to make Homemade Brown Sugar.

Homemade Brown Sugar is one of those pantry staples you might as well make yourself! It is easy to do, while you get to control the ingredients used.  

Are you interested in being more self-sufficient? Then you are in the right place!  Homemade Brown Sugar is very simple to make. You can also customize it for your family's preferences. I like to have both light brown and dark brown sugar on hand for cooking and baking. 

All you need is organic evaporated cane sugar and a jug of organic molasses.  Below are the formulas I use. But feel free to adjust for your own taste and preference. Once whisked together, store in a lidded container with or without a terra cotta bear. It really is that easy.

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • sugar
  • molasses
You will also need the following:
  • large bowl
  • measuring cups
  • whisk 
Now we are ready to begin!

Note: if you have a texture preference, evaporated cane sugar is a larger-sized grain than standard sugar. If you like the smaller size (especially over your oatmeal, like we do) you may want to buzz the sugar in a food processor for a few moments before adding the molasses.

Light Brown Sugar, aka "regular" Brown Sugar

Makes 6 cups

6 c evaporated cane sugar
1/3 c molasses

Drizzle the molasses over the top of the sugar in a large bowl. Using a whisk, stir and fold the sugar over and over until the molasses has been distributed evenly. Store sugar in a canister with a tight-fitting lid, also if you have a terracotta sugar bear, place a drop of water on the bear, spread the water around over the top, and gently place it on the sugar. Cover and store. Use in all recipes calling for brown sugar.

Make your own Brown Sugar!

Store sugar in a canister with a tight-fitting lid, also use a terracotta sugar bear, by placing a single drop of water on the bear. Spread the water around over the top of the bear, blot off any extra water and place the bear (moist side up) on top of the sugar. Cover and store in a cool dry area. Use in all your favorite recipes calling for brown sugar.
