vanilla sugar

A pantry item I love to have on hand is vanilla beans. But they're so expensive and yield such a small amount of useful seeds that it feels so wasteful. So here's one way you can use your vanilla bean "carcass" over and over.

Vanilla Sugar
1 vanilla bean pod, seeds removed and used elsewhere (like in a delicious crème brûlée)
2 cups of granulated pure cane sugar
  • Combine the 2 ingredients into an airtight container and let the vanilla aroma flavor the sugar. After a few hours, you can add it to your herbal tea, or whatever you want. Just keep adding sugar to the container as you use it up, and the pod will keep flavoring it.
