Does anyone know how to prevent clumping sugar?
I just moved from California from Texas and we are getting use to humidy. But my sugar,baking powder and soda are clumping and I don't know how to prevent them from doing this. I have never lived in humidy and I have never had this problem before. They are in plastic rubbermaid containers in my cabinet in my house. I have air conditioning that I run all the time so I don't know why they are clumping. Any help would be appreciated.

Try putting a saltine cracker or two in with your sugars. They absorb the extra moisture. A slice of bread put in with some over-baked cookies softens them up also!

The containers do need to be air tight. The saltine cracker is a good idea. You can also try uncooked rice in with you salt or sugar just sift it before you use it.

I too live in CA and have lived in many humid places over the years. good luc

The best thing to use is a raw ziti noodle or two. This will help keep the lumps out of your sugar.
