Tip for using spent vanilla pod:
A great use for leftover vanilla bean pods is to turn them into vanilla sugar. This can be done a two ways:
- Cut the vanilla bean pods into one inch pieces (about 2-3 pods to 2 cups of granulated sugar). Seal in an airtight jar and allow to sit 1-2 weeks. Use normally as you would plain, granulated sugar.
- The second method is to dry the vanilla bean pods using a food dyhdrator or by setting your oven on low and allowing the vanilla bean pods to dry out. Once dry, break the beans and place in a coffee mill or spice grinder (if you've used the coffee mill to grind coffee, make sure you clean it well before grinding the vanilla). Grind until desired consistency. This adds a nice visual touch to your vanilla sugar to go with the sweet delicate flavor.
