    1. 1
      Place sugar in a 1-2 quart glass jar that has a tight fitting scew-on lid.
    2. 2
      Cut vanilla bean so it fits into jar and push it down into the sugar.
    3. 3
      Place lit tightly on jar and allow to sit for at least 3 day before using.
    4. 4
      ~NOTE~ This will keep for a very long time. As you use the sugar, you can replace it. The vanilla bean will be good as long as it is fragrant.

      This was a great recipe. I like to add it to my coffee, even tea as well. I used this instead of regular sugar in my Cowboy cookies... very tasty. Followed exactly as directed. And now I have a new item to add to Christmas baskets.. Thanks for posting a WINNING and simple recipe!!!

      This is really, really good. Usually I fill half the container with caster sugar before adding my whole vanilla bean, then I top it off with more sugar. I set it aside for at least 7 days before I start using it. Thanks for posting this recipe! :)
