Happy Tuesday! Today I’m starting a new weekly series called Tip Tuesday. Each week I’ll share a small tip that I have found useful in my kitchen or home.
Today I’m sharing a tip for making vanilla sugar. I learned this tip from my mother in law. She always keeps a few vanilla beans in her sugar container. The vanilla sugar is soooo yummy in baked goods or added to coffee or tea. All you have to do is slice a few vanilla beans down the center or in half and add them to your sugar container.
In the picture above I have two split vanilla beans mixed with my coconut sugar. Once I use up all the sugar, I add more and keep the vanilla beans in the jar. The vanilla beans will continue to add flavor to the sugar for several months.
You can use any type of sugar to make vanilla sugar. We have used coconut sugar, rapadura sugar, organic cane sugar and brown sugar. Make sure to purchase high quality vanilla beans that are fragrant and plump. You will pay a little more for them but they will last a lot longer.
I hope you enjoyed todays tip. Come back next week to learn something new!
