Tip From The Hearth: Make Your Own Vanilla Sugar
Coffee drinkers and sugar aficionados rejoice! Did you know you can make your own flavored sugar? All you need: One used vanilla bean and two cups of sugar. Once you've cut open the bean and used it's yummy goodness in a batch of frosting, ice cream, cookies, etc, bury the pod in two cups of sugar. Allow the mixture to rest for a week. When the week is up and you remove the bean, you'll have two cups of vanilla-flavored sugar to use as you see fit.
