Beet sugar or another type of sugar of your choice
Get the sugar ready in a mixing bowl. You could also use granulated sugar.
Scrape the vanilla beans out of its pod and mix in the sugar well, so that the beans spread out evenly.
When the beans are well blended, transfer into a jar and stick the vanilla pod into the sugar. Let sit for 2 to 3 days and it's ready to use.
Story Behind this Recipe
Normally I buy vanilla sugar, but this time I prepared it for myself using good quality sugar.
All the tools you use including the container for storage should be completely dried. You could also make this with vanilla pod without the beans. If you prefer an easier recipe without vanilla beans, sprinkle 2 to 3 drops of vanilla essence over 1 table spoon sugar.
