Ingredients

24 ounces granulated sugar

4 Madagascar vanilla beans (split and scraped) -

*Any variety of vanilla bean will work

1 sugar container

Used vanilla beans, dried (if used in wet applications such as creams and crème brulees)

Directions

Combine the sugar and vanilla bean scrapings in a medium bowl. Using your hands (using disposable gloves is preferred), slowly rub together the sugar and the vanilla bean scrapings until all the scrapings have been dispersed well throughout the sugar. Pour sugar/ bean mixture into one of our decorative glass jars. Cork and set aside to give as gifts. The vanilla and sugar will age over time and become more fragrant and delicious.

Aged Vanilla Sugar:

Perfect for at-home - never throw out your beans!

Once you have used your vanilla bean for on the beautiful desserts or savory items you have created do not throw them away! Add them to your sugar container to enhance all of your baked goods with beautiful vanilla flavor.

Place vanilla bean into your sugar container after using and cover with sugar. Continue this each time you use a bean. The vanilla flavor will intensify over time and with the addition of more used beans (it usually takes 2-3 weeks to infuse the first bean into the sugar). Add additional beans to maintain the flavor and refresh the sugar if needed.

Your homemade vanilla sugar should a very light golden brown in color. Feel free to experiment with the flavor by adding more beans (used or unused).
