Vanilla Sugar Recipe- A German Kitchen Essential
Want to know How to Make Vanilla Sugar? This Quick Vanilla Sugar Recipe is a snap to make. If you do any German baking you will want to have it around to make the authentic recipes. There is always a jar on my pantry shelf. One nice thing is that it’s a bit like a sour-dough starter. Once you have it going, you can keep adding more sugar to the vanilla. Those beans give off flavor for a LOOOOONg time.
All you have to do is fill a medium jar half full with granulated sugar, add a few vanilla beans, fill the rest of the way, close the jar, and put it in the pantry.
Use when the Sugar smells of Vanilla.
It’s that easy.
