Vanilla Sugar

One of the simplest kitchen tricks I know is to make a batch of vanilla sugar and  keep it on hand for mixing into tea or coffee. Also you can use it as a special boost of flavor for baking. 

... all you do is find a good brand of vanilla bean and pop one or two of them whole, into a clear glass jar that you've filled with superfine sugar.  In just a few days the warmth and vanilla nuttiness will scent the sugar and be ready to use for whatever you like!
