Vanilla Beans

Ok, I know I'm starting to get obsessed with vanilla beans. What can I say I LOVE vanilla beans. My newest use for the beans is vanilla syrup and vanilla sugar. I use the syrup in my coffee and homemade icecream. The vanilla sugar is great in any recipe that calls for vanilla (replace it for the white sugar). The uses are pretty much endless. I made the sugar by processing sugar with a vanilla bean that split and scraped. So easy!!

Everybody had to help with the sugar.

The syrup was easy too. In a saucepan over low heat, disolve 2 cups of sugar with 2 cups of water. Once the sugar is disolve split and scrape your vanilla bean into the mixture. Bring to a simmer, remove from heat and let cool. Pour into your container and enjoy!

Let me know if you make one these and how you like it.

  1. I need some vanilla beans!! Where do you order your beans from? I am out of extract and always thinking that I would love to have the vanilla sugar! I also love that you are still using a French Press for your coffee!! The BEST way to drink it:) Did you make the little stand in the background? very cute pictures!!

    by the way, I love your white cups too!! where are those from? my coffee cups are black. I like them but they are too small:)
