  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 3 vanilla beans


  1. Split the vanilla beans lengthwise, and scrape out the seeds with the tip of the knife
  2. Add the sugar and the vanilla seeds to the bowl of a food processor, and process until the seeds are evenly dispersed throughout. You can do this in batches if your food processor is small.
  3. Transfer the vanilla sugar to a jar and tuck the empty pods into the sugar. Store in a cool, dry place for at least one month.
