Homemade Vanilla Bean Sugar

Substituting sugar: You can use vanilla sugar for substituting any sugar on recipes – it will enhance flavor!

Try it with your coffee – it is so good!

Storing: Store in a airtight container at cool and dark place (just like storing other sugar). There is no expiration date for vanilla sugar.

Make more: Just pour more sugar as you use vanilla sugar. Vanilla beans will keep infusing new sugar. If you have more used vanilla bean, just stick into the container after you clean and pat dry them.
