Vanilla Sugar

What to do with all those use vanilla pods from making French Toast, Creme Brulee or Pecan Pie? Vanilla Pods still have a lot of flavor in them and if you haven’t used the pod in your dish, the pod deserves a second life.


  • Vanilla Bean Pod
  • Sugar


  • Take Vanilla Bean Pod
  • Place into container full of sugar

That’s it. There are no quantities defined for this recipe — use whatever you have. In a few days the sugar will begin to pickup the  aroma of the vanilla. In a few weeks it’ll be ready for use. I’ve had vanilla sugar steeping for a few months and use it in nearly everything that calls for table sugar.
