Vanilla Sugar

This idea is so simple, but really makes the ordinary extraordinary. Sprinkle some over fresh strawberries, add to your coffee, use it for cinnamon toast or oatmeal. Once you make a batch of this vanilla sugar you will want to use it in everything.


Vanilla beans (If your grocery store doesn't have vanilla beans check with a natural food store.)
Regular granulated sugar
Sterilized pint sized jars with lids

Slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise.
Place one vanilla bean in a jar.
Fill the jar with 1 cup sugar.
Screw the lid on the jar tightly.

Leave for 1 or 2 weeks to allow the vanilla to infuse in the sugar.

Notes: When you start to run low, just add more sugar to the jar. In a couple of weeks you will have more vanilla sugar!
