Hi everyone – I have a guest post tonight from Andrea of Wild Bean Vanilla Company. She has a great post on how to make Vanilla Sugar which is great for adding a bit more vanilla to your baked goods!
Hi all! A big thank you to Karyn for inviting me to guest post on her blog again! My name is Andrea, and together my husband Chad and I own Wild Bean Vanilla Company.
When Karyn invited me to guest blog again, she suggested I demonstrate something with vanilla beans. In addition to making your own vanilla extract, there are other food items that you can infuse with vanilla beans. I have recipes for vanilla honey and vanilla salt pinned on my Pinterest board, but the most fun one, I think is vanilla sugar! It’s quite a simple recipe to make, and very versatile!
- 1 vanilla bean of your choice (I prefer Madagascar for this recipe, but choose your favorite!)
- 1 C. granulated sugar
- Slice vanilla bean lengthwise,and scrape out seeds.
- In food processor, combine sugar and seed scrapings, then process.
- Store in airtight container. For maximum flavor, let it sit for 1-2 weeks, but you could use this right away if you’d like!
So what to use it on? My favorite thing is using it in my coffee, but you could also try sprinkling it on top of fruit, substituting it in recipes for regular sugar, or using it with hot cocoa or hot vanilla! Thank you again Karyn, I hope you all have fun with this simple recipe!
Thanks for the post, Andrea! I hope everyone enjoys a bit of extra Vanilla in their sweets! If you’re looking for some Vanilla Beans and Extracts, check out her great bulk prices!
