Vanilla bean sugar.

This flavored sugar adds extra depth and holiday cheer to any sweet treat thanks to the inclusion of fresh vanilla bean. I recommend using Madagascar vanilla beans; however, international grocery stores usually sell common vanilla beans in bulk at very affordable prices.

Yields | 4 cups |

  • 2 vanilla beans, split and scraped, pods reserved
  • 4 cups granulated sugar

| Preparation | In a small mixing bowl, add sugar and scraped vanilla bean. Mix together with a wooden spoon until well combined. Pour mixture into a large Mason jar or container and add split vanilla bean pods for additional flavor. Seal tightly and label; allow sugar to infuse for at least 3 days or up to 1 week before using.
