Ingredients

  • Sugar
  • Vanilla Bean or beans
  • Jars

Directions

Get a vanilla bean. Slice it lengthwise twice so you have four very skinny strips of bean. Then cut those beans in half so you now have 8 shorter vanilla beans. Add one piece of the bean to a jug or jar of sugar. Shake the jar and keep it in a cool dark place for 8 weeks, shaking once a week. Depending on the number of beans you started with and the amount of sugar, you now have flavored sugar to give as gifts for the holidays or birthdays during the year.

You'll find that this adds a hint of flavor when used in your cereal, tea or coffee.

When giving as a gift, be sure and advise the recipient not to throw out the little brown stick-like vanilla bean in the sugar when they find it. If they add more sugar, it will keep right on working.

If you buy vanilla beans, to make vanilla extract and have some left over, just put a bean or 2 in a quart jar. Fill the jar with sugar put a lid on it and let sit about a week. You will have vanilla sugar for coffee or use it in cake or cookie recipes. You won't have to use all the vanilla extract the recipe calls for.

After you use about half of the vanilla sugar refill with more sugar. It will last a long time.
