Place a wooden spoon across the top of your pot to prevent it from boiling over. The spoon breaks the surface tension of the bubbles, keeping them from overflowing.
- Keep Brown Sugar Soft
Place a marshmallow or a slice of bread in your brown sugar container. The moisture from the marshmallow or bread will keep the sugar soft and easy to scoop.
