Brown sugar: How do you store it?

My box of brown sugar turns hard as a brick, anyone have a jack hammer I can borrow? Is there any way to avoid this?

I keep my brown sugar in the refrig..it keeps it moist and therefore usually keeps it soft...if I have a problem I put the sugar in the microwave nuke it a bit and voilla soft sugar.

I keep mine in the freezer & then just put it in the microwave to soften it. If I know a good bit ahead of time that I am going to need it I take it out of the freezer & let it "thaw" on the counter.

I store mine like middie.

To soften what you have, place a slice of white bread (cheap is fine) in with the brown sugar overnight. It usually softens it up. Good luck!

I'm with middie - in the bag, in a sealed plastic container - and it works even here in humidity central!
