A Pantry Trick- Vanilla Scented Sugar
Here is a trick I learned years ago, though I do not remember where. Take a jelly jar or a small mason jar and fill it with sugar. Add a whole vanilla bean and close tightly, then store it in your cupboard or pantry for a few days until the vanilla scent and flavor infuses the sugar. Use it in baking. Sprinkle it on French toast, as I did this morning. It will keep indefinitely.
I used natural cane sugar here and also added a piece of a cinnamon stick.
