Using and Storing Vanilla Beans

If you split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds, discarding the shell or hull. Add the seeds to your dishes or beverages for flavor. Vanilla beans can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 6 months. Tightly secure the beans in plastic wrap before putting in an air tight jar.

Instead of throwing out the shell, store it in some sugar. Very flavorful vanilla sugar.

If you want your vanilla beans to last a LONG time...Store your whole beans in a Vodka. Just make sure you cover the beans completely. You can use the liquid as flavorings in your favorite desserts and then when you need a bean, pull one, clip one end and squeeze it out. Keep adding vodka as you use the liquid and it will last a lifetime.
