Don't throw out the vanilla bean pod when you are done with it either. Make vanilla sugar instead! Simply place the scraped vanilla bean pod in a small spice jar and fill with granulated sugar. Shake well and allow to sit for a week or so for the flavors to infuse before using. Vanilla sugar is really great sprinkled over baked goods, in a cup of coffee, or in your morning bowl of cereal.
