Don't toss it! How to soften brown sugar that has hardened!

You don't have to throw out brown sugar that has hardened, here's a couple things you can try: place your brown sugar with a fresh slice of bread or a couple of apple slices in an airtight container, leave it overnight, if it's soft in the morning remove the bread or apples, if it's still hard try one more night. If you need to use the brown sugar right away, put the sugar in a bowl with a loose lid in the microwave, place a small bowl of water next to the sugar, microwave for 1 minute, if it's still hard try 30 seconds more just be careful to not melt the sugar.
