How to Make Vanilla Sugar


Did you know that you can make your own vanilla-infused sugar at home? Instead of buying the pre-packaged stuff, here's how to make a batch that you can keep around for months:

Split one whole vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with a knife into a large airtight container. Add the split bean and cover with sugar. Shake to combine and allow the mixture to infuse for 2 weeks before using.

If you keep topping up the sugar, you'll be able to extract flavor out of a single vanilla bean for months. And, if you use vanilla beans in any other recipe, add the reserved beans to your container. It's delicious in any recipe that calls for regular sugar and a spoon in your morning coffee will certainly brighten up your day.
