Vanilla Sugar

Every once in a while, I will have a recipe that calls for a whole vanilla bean. After I split it and remove the seeds, I toss the spent pod into a little plastic container where I keep some sugar. The pod infuses the sugar with a warm vanilla goodness. When the sugar runs low, I just add some more. Those spent pods are like a gift that keeps on giving. The Captain LOVES the vanilla sugar in his morning coffee.
