Vanilla Sugar

It's a good thing.

I don't know how many of you use whole vanilla beans on a regular basis, but when you do, you just don't want to get rid of those beautifully scented and flavored beans once they've been split. I find the easiest thing to do is just to throw then in sugar bowl and let the sugar extract the remaining flavor. Now I have heavenly scented vanilla sugar for coffee or to sprinkle on some fresh fruit if I want. You can use it in baking if you like. Or I'm sure you can make into a bath product as well. And as you keep using vanilla beans, you can keep adding them to the sugar.

What a great idea. Selena just bought some vanilla beans, I'm going to forward this along to her.
