    Brown Sugar?

    Primal Fuel
    No, not

    When a recipe calls for brown sugar, what is a good replacement? I have so many recipes that use 1/4c packed brown sugar and I have no idea what to use instead.

    I need help!

    Take out some of the liquid in the recipe and use honey to taste?
    If it's a savory dish, caramelized onions?
    Take out some liquid in the recipe and use pureed pumpkin, sweet potato, or sweet squash?

    You could use an itsy bit of molasses, since that's what flavors the white sugar to make it brown. If it called for a 1/4 c. of brown sugar, I think to get the (non-sweet) flavor, you could sub a 1/2 tsp of molasses. As for the lost sweetness? Skip it or choose your poison.

    +1 on the molasses (and the bacon, too!)
    Blackstrap molasses is nom and it's packed w/ nutrients. whfoods.org lists it as one of the world's healthiest foods.
    I'm petitioning to get bacon added to that list, too. rofl

    I personally would just not add the brown sugar. Maybe add a touch of honey instead.
    Find me at aToadontheRoad.com. Cheers!

    Rub? Try the carmelized onions. I promise, they work wonders. Puree them and add the rest of your stuff. Should still work.

    Try a mixture of apple cider vinegar with molasses mixed in.
