Vanilla Sugar

Fresh vanilla beans, or ones that have been spent making homemade vanilla extract can be used to make vanilla-flavored sugar. Use the vanilla sugar in place of granulated or powdered sugar when you want to intensify the vanilla flavor, such as in hot chocolate, crepes, whipping cream, or desserts.

If using beans after making vanilla extract, place them on a rack and allow to dry completely. If using fresh beans, spit the beans lengthwise using a sharp knife (keep the seeds inside the beans).VanillaSugar2

Place the beans in a container full of granulated sugar and cover completely with the sugar (seal container). Tossing every few days to allow the flavor to permeate throughout all the sugar.VanillaSugar3

You can even use powdered sugar! Allow at least 2 weeks before using the sugar for maximum vanilla flavor.VanillaSugar4
