The best thing about Vanilla Sugar, is that you can indefinitely keep making more as you need: just add more sugar to your container and you’re done! This is a perfect way to avoid wasting any vanilla beans after they have been used.
Recipe adapted from Alton Brown
Makes 2 cups
2 Cups of sugar
1 vanilla bean (seeds scraped)
- Cut each vanilla bean into two or three pieces, enough so they can be placed in a container.
- Fill with sugar and after only a few hours, the vanilla beans will be completely dry and a quick shake of the container will break up any clumps of sugar that formed.
- The sugar can them be stored indefinitely, replenished with fresh sugar or additional vanilla beans as necessary to make more.
