Brown Sugar Bear
I’ve wanted one of these little guys forever, and the other day Mr. J surprised me with two. You can soak them in water for 20 minutes to keep your brown sugar from getting clumpy. It’s made out of terra cotta or something similar so it soaks the water right up. According to the package you can do a lot more with it than keep brown sugar fresh. You can dry it out in the oven to keep moisture out of herbs and electronic equipment. Isn’t he cute?

This little guy is very handy in the kitchen. It sprays oil like an aerosol, but without the chemicals (not good for me or my cookware). I load it up with 1/4 of olive oil and spray in place of cooking spray for most everything except baking. I recently got a bottle of olive oil that has a lighter flavor so I may use it more often. The oil lives in the bottom chamber with a funky looking spray mechanism. You pump the lid up and down to create pressure in the chamber which makes the oil spray out in a fine mist. It’s also great for spraying on foods that need a light coating of oil (like kale for kale chips or potatoes for baked fries) and salads for a quick dressing. Thanks, Mom, for this great tool.
