The canisters are quick and easy to use, hook up the hose and push the canister button.
Who among us hasn’t opened a package of brown sugar to find a solid one piece brick? I’ve even had this happen with an unopened package that was soft when I checked it at the store. About 2 years ago I started putting my light and dark brown sugar in small FoodSaver canisters and vacuum sealing them. Since then I haven’t ever had to deal with hardened brown sugar. Now if you are thinking it is a pain having to pull out the FoodSaver every time you need sugar. Just think about how much trouble it is softening hardened brown sugar. If you are like me, you discover hardened brown sugar when you were the most pressed for time. The brown sugar worked so well I’ve also started putting extra dough or breading in the canisters for later use.
So if you have a FoodSaver with a canister hose, pick up some small canisters and put your brown sugar in it. You will always have soft brown sugar, ready to go at a moments notice.
