2 months ago, I made home-made vanilla sugar. It is so easy to make & so tasty to use too. Here in Belgium, we can buy it in expensive little sachets of each 20 gr. Who knows what else they put in that vanilla sugar?
So, this is how I did this & you can easily make this too!
Recipe: For 450 gr vanilla sugar
450 gr of white vegan castor sugar = 2 cups
1 thick dried Bourbon vanilla bean
1. Take a fitting glass jar with fitting lid for your 450 grams of vanilla sugar to be!
2. Place the thick dried vanilla bean on a chopping board & slice the bean open vertically, on the long side. Scrape the vanilla seeds out & place them into the sugar. Cut your vanilla bean in different pieces & add to your sugar. Mix well with a clean spoon. Place the fitted lid on & place into a dry cupboard. Every day or so, mix with a spoon. After 1 week, your sugar will be ready. You can leave your vanilla beans in the sugar for a long time, the vanilla flavour will develop more,… Before using, you can sieve your vanilla sugar & keep in a lovely glass jar with fitted lid to give away as a lovely & tasty food gift! Or you can process the bean bits in a food processor & not sieve the vanilla sugar. I like the black spots in my vanilla sugar, don’t you? You even can leave the vanilla beans for a few months into your sugar: it is up to you! 🙂 Enjoy! 🙂
