  • After using vanilla beans in another recipe, wash the bean pods and dry them well with a paper towel. Place the vanilla beans into a mason jar and fill with organic sugar. Let the sugar sit for three weeks, shaking the jar periodically.
  • One can also speed the process up and use the whole vanilla bean pods to make a sugar. Chop the clean and dried vanilla bean pods into smaller pieces.
