The Ingredient: Brown Sugar

I don't normally use brown sugar.  I have only used it for dessert recipes, but have used it so rarely I can not even remember one.  I thought it would be really interesting to see what type of  crock recipe would use this sweetener.

Research shows that brown sugar gets its color because it contains more molasses than white sugar.  I noticed there are several articles about which sugar is better for you, but after reading a few, looks like there is no major health benefit to either one.
