Storing homemade brown sugar syrup

If you’re a busy person like me, I always make sure I have homemade brown sugar syrup in the fridge.

Homemade brown sugar syrup is a delicious topping for pancakes, French toast, waffles, and even ice cream. It’s also great on top of a bowl of fresh berries.

However, you may be wondering about storing it. I have two ways that I store my homemade brown sugar syrup.

The first method is by placing it in a mason jar. I keep it in the refrigerator because the syrup in the jar is fresher longer. You can buy these glass bottles at any grocery store. They are usually found near the condiments section.

The second method is to place it in an airtight container. This is perfect if you want to take some with you when you go out. Just remember to bring it back to room temperature before using it again.

Light Vs. Dark Brown Sugar

Light brown sugar has a milder, slightly caramel flavor, and darker brown sugar has a deeper, richer flavor.

While the color may look similar, the two types of brown sugar are made using different processes.

Light brown sugar is made by treating granulated sugar with a cup of molasses and then drying it out. The process removes moisture and creates a lighter-colored sugar.

Dark brown sugar is made by boiling down pure sugar with stronger molasses until it becomes a thick syrup. Then it is dried and ground into powder form.

When choosing between the two, I prefer using dark brown sugar because it gives the best results for baking.

I love a good cup of coffee on Monday mornings for that pick-me-up, also love them in the afternoon, and on Tuesdays. In fact, it's fair to say that I love coffee all day everyday! So much so that I created a whole site to blog about it, answer questions and to just have a place for my frequent ramblings on the wonder that is.. coffee!
