Brown sugar that sits in a box, bag, and cabinet for a while is bound to become hard and stick together, often making the sugar more difficult to portion for baking. However, you can soften brown sugar so that it works well with recipes. You can simply place the brown sugar in the microwave and place a container of water with it. Nuke both items in 30 second increments till the sugar has softened. You can also place the sugar in a container of sliced apples for a couple of days until it is soft.
