I bought this recently. I have eyed them for a few years now, but just haven't taken the step to purchase one. I have been using the heels of bread to keep the Brown Sugar moist in my container after I had opened the bag. This one is made by http://www.brownsugardiscs.com/. It's a cute little bear....so my grandchildren should like it!
The instructions state that you should "soak (the) disc in water for 15 minutes, then pat dry. Place your disc in with your brown sugar. Your disc will keep your brown sugar soft for up to 3 months. When your sugar begins to harden, re-soak and re-use disc".
I filled a small container with water.
Then soaked the disc in water.
After drying it with a paper towel, I dropped it into my Brown Sugar container.
Here is the disc. I have wondered if a broken piece of a pot could work after it had been cleaned. However, since I now have this cute disc......I will use it.
It will be nice to having to change the heel of bread every once-in-a-while. I am glad I finally took the plunge. Now I will have moist brown sugar......without bread crumbs!
