Vanilla sugar is sugar that has been infused with vanilla.
To make it, simply put some sugar in a container that has a lid. You can use a large wide-mouth Mason jar.
Split one vanilla bean down the middle and add it in the center of the sugar. (You can also re-use vanilla beans from past recipes.)
Shake the container well, and store in the pantry
Shake the jar before measuring out sugar.
You can keep a container of vanilla sugar going indefinitely. Each time you use the sugar, add more to the jar, and add used vanilla beans from time to time.
