Making Homemade Vanilla Sugar

Cut the vanilla bean in smaller pieces and to a food processor. Pour the sugar in and run until the sugar and vanilla bean makes a fine mix. Sift the mass into a bowl, this way you get rid of the coarse pieces of vanilla. The sifted vanilla sugar is now ready for use and should be added to an airtight container. I put mine in a glass that had been sterilized after a turn in the dishwasher. The sugar can be used for cakes and cookies, or as a sweet addition to a cup of cocoa. It also makes for a nice present, especially if you write a recipe on a little card, suggesting how to use it.

Over time I have improved this version of vanilla sugar by adding my used vanilla pods. They might not look it, but covered in sugar they will help infuse your sugar with splendid vanilla taste. Just cover them with new sugar as you use it up and give the sugar a shake to have it equally dispersed. I have been using sugar from this jar since March 2012, today is  31st of January 2013, so that is how long it lasts.
