Simple! This is the easiest thing to make and it is a lovely little gift. I love vanilla lattes but I am not willing to pay the price. Vanilla sugar makes a sweet addition to my morning coffee and I’m not using one of those questionably artificially flavored additives.
How about a jar of this sugar, a pound of great coffee and a beautiful new mug for your coffee drinking friends? Include a sweet ceramic creamer for fun. Easy, thoughtful and they’ll be back asking you if you’ve got a cup of sugar they can ‘borrow’.
Super easy step by step:
I like to use pure organic cane sugar. I purchase a vanilla bean or two from the bulk section (way way cheaper than the spice aisle). Slice the bean the long way, exposing the sweet vanilla seeds and pulp.
Cut it into several sections and add it to a jar of sugar. That’s it! I shake it every few days and it just gets better and better. It’s ready to use immediately but will continue to mellow.
