Vanilla Sugar

Adding some vanilla-sugar is one of my favorite ways to spice up a recipe.  Where ordinary sugar might seem dull and uninspired, the simple addition of vanilla-sugar gives any dish an extra sense of wow!  Best of all, it only takes a few minutes to make.

Also, please do not go to the store and spend $4.00 on one vanilla bean.  You can find very affordable vanilla beans online.

Vanilla Sugar

PREP TIME: 10 minutes
YIELD: 4 cups

1-Quart Mason Jar
4 Bourbon vanilla beans, 7″ or 8″ long
4 cups granulated sugar


Split the vanilla beans down the middle (long-wise), and add the caviar and the beans to the sugar.  Shake the jar a few times, and then use the vanilla sugar from everything to buttermilk plum pancakes, to ginger-peach Italian Ice!

  1. That sounds delicious. I don’t know my squashes very well so I’m not sure what a buttercup squash looks like, but I’m sure I can figure it out.
