    Default Making Your Own Brown Sugar

    Making Your Own Brown Sugar

    Making your own brown sugar is easy and cheaper than buying it at the
    supermarket; it tastes great on cooked oatmeal in the morning or used in any
    recipe calling for brown sugar.

    To 1 cup granulated sugar, add 2 Tablespoons molasses. Stir together until
    evenly mixed with a fork. After trying it once, vary it by using 1 Tablespoon
    molasses, using the dark molasses or the light molasses. We prefer 1 cup sugar
    to 1 Tablespoon light molasses, but I have made all the other variations. I make
    a double batch every time

    Is that how the manufacturers make brown sugar? With Molasses?
    I always wondered where brown sugar came from. I thought
    it was from brown sugar cane or something like that.

    Yes Brown sugar is easily made frome regular granulated sugar. The more molases
    you add the darker the sugar will be. Just mix well. A little goes a long way

    Sugar cane juice is naturally full of molasses and nutrients. All
    of this is refined out to create white sugar. White sugar is
    strictly the sucrose part of the juice.

    Brown sugar should be sugar that has not been as refined so as to
    retain some of the molasses and nutrients. Sad to say that most
    manufacturers simply take white sugar and add some molasses back to
    it to create brown sugar.

    These days, nearly everything is unhealthy in one way or another. For diabetics, the rule of thumb is anything white stay away from. But as for this, I have been making my own like this for years.
