Vanilla infused sugar

vanilla infused sugar
I don't use vanilla essence because of the alcohol in it. Instead I infuse the sugar with vanilla beans.

All you need...
vanilla bean
tight jar

If the vanilla bean is slit a little with a pairing knife, it is faster to get the beautiful aroma into the sugar.  Keep the sugar in a tightly covered jar. 
Keep refilling sugar to the same vanilla bean.
Vanilla pod can be scraped and used in other desserts.
