for 500 gr sugar you need
6-7 pods of vanilla
You recognise a good quality pod by its shiny and oily coat.
|Cut it length wise in half. No need to scrape out the mark.|
|Put in your storage container (preferable glas, airtight seal).|
|Fill the jars with the sugar|
|Seal and shake it, Baby! Shake it for a good minute.|
Store cool and dark for at least 6-8 weeks better 3 Months. Every time you pass your storage, you give the jar a good shake. You can use the sugar as it is or if you have a food processor turn it into powdered sugar. You can put the full pod in and process it with the sugar.
What to use it in:
smoothies, if needed
and in this heat, foremost ICE CREAM!
The very fine sugar (like icing sugar) that you get after processing it in the food processor is far better if you make ice cream without an ice cream maker. As your ice cream will have less crystals.
And because Christmas is coming up faster than one thinks I made double the amount.
