Making Your Own Vanilla Sugar:
As a chef I hate wastage, so I use vanilla pods that I have already used for making something else. For instance a classic crème anglaise (custard). After infusion of the vanilla pod in the cream or milk, remove the pod and gently wash and pat dry. You can of course use a fresh vanilla pod if you prefer.
Then in a suitable airtight container e.g. a Kilner jar, place some sugar of your choice depending on what you will use the sugar for eventually (either caster or granulated). Approx. 1 kg of sugar to two vanilla pods. If you like a stronger vanilla flavour, add more to taste.
Simply leave it in your container for a couple of weeks giving it a shake every couple of days and it’s ready for you to use in your desserts or baking etc, it’s delicious.
