Here is my container of sugar. I have labelled it vanilla and Spiderman helpfully relabelled it “Light at fart”--thanks darlin’.
To make vanilla sugar you need….wait for it….vanilla and sugar. Duh.
Like you did in the vanilla essence, slit the bean and then push it down into the sugar. You may need to cut each pod in half to fit in the container.
Then close it up and wait about a month in infuse. In my experience the sugar goes a darker colour after a few weeks, but it is too soon to tell with the one I’ve just made.

I like to have 2 containers going at the same time.
Use Container A while Container B matures.
Finished Container A? Add sugar and store away to mature then crack open Container B.

Now go and make your own.
