Ever start preparing a recipe, only to discover you're missing one of the ingredients? It can happen. And depending on what the ingredient is, it can stop you in your tracks — or at least send you running to the grocery store.

Fortunately, brown sugar is one ingredient you never have to worry about running out of. OK, maybe not never. But as long as you have ordinary sugar and molasses, you can make your own brown sugar in about a minute.

I think it is important though to know that a light mollasses will make a light brown sugar and a blackstrap will make a dark. You don’t want to overpower tastes in certain recipes with the dark brown sugar.

You’re quite right about that, and in addition to experimenting with different types of molasses, you can also use a bit more molasses for a darker brown sugar or a bit less for a lighter result.
