I keep mine in an airtight, plastic container with a screwtop. The opening is big enough to pass my 1 c measuring cup.

I store brown sugar in its original bag inside a heavy-duty ziploc with as much air removed as possible.

Plastic isn't 'air tight.' It's porous. Certain plastics are more porous than others, but generally speaking, the thinner the plastic, the less 'air tight' the item will be long term.

If you go through brown sugar fast enough, then store it any way you want. If you want to prolong it's life as long as possible, use glass. Same for spices.

Thank you for making that distinction, scott. I do use the stuff a lot, so it really doesn't have the opportunity to dry out.

I also store mine like Audeo, but I also put one of those clay moisture absorbers in it. I never have a problem with my brown sugar becoming hard.

In Tupperware with a piece of bread. A slice of apple is also supposed to work well, but I haven't tried that one.
