Vanilla sugar is a real treat when you use it in coffee, over cereal or even in baking.
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 Tahitian vanilla bean
Pour sugar into a jar. Split vanilla bean, and scrape the seeds out, placing them into the sugar, mixing them well. Then add the rest of the vanilla bean, inserting them into the sugar. Seal and store in a dark cupboard. Shake or mix the vanilla sugar every few days for two weeks, then enjoy! Vanilla sugar will last up to a year when stored in an airtight container.
