Vanilla Infused Sugar
You know for this post that I love my coffee – but I don’t love it black. I use yummy treats to make the coffee even better. My favorite lately has been Vanilla Infused Sugar. And just in case you’ve never infused sugar with Vanilla I’m going to share with you just how easy it is to do. And it’s so yummy in coffee! You really must try it 😀
You will need:
2 cups sugar
1 Vanilla bean
An airtight container
Cutting board (optional but I prefer not to dull my knives or cut my table/countertops)
For those of you local to me – I buy my vanilla beans from ‘The Flour Barrel’. For everyone else – you can search locally for vanilla beans (bulk food stores are great possibilities) or you can order them online (Penzeys is a great choice)
Cut one Vanilla Bean in half lengthwise.
Scrape the seeds out of the bean pod. Put seeds into the 2 cups of sugar.
Cut Bean pod in smaller pieces and add to sugar.
Mix well and store in an airtight container. A cute container is optional but makes it more fun
For best flavor let sit for a couple of weeks before using. Even my husband thought this was good to add to coffee – and he almost always drinks his coffee black!
