Brown sugar in a pinch

Last night I went to glaze a ham but discovered I was out of brown sugar. 

No problem.

I just added 1 tablespoon of molasses to 1 cup of white sugar.

 After mixing, I ended up with this:

 Brown sugar!

In case you are wondering, the ham was glazed very on-the-fly. I just combined the juice of a can of pineapples with about 1/4 cup of brown sugar and a couple tablespoons of maple syrup.

Is there something you use in a pinch? 

Do tell! Do tell!

  1. Wow, so clever to think of that, sure my Mum wouldn't :)

    In a pinch my Mum comes up with all kinds, she just rustles around in the fridge and the cupboards, she's even made me a magic dinner when she runs out of kibble, I hope it happens more often!! :)

    Wags to all
