I am obsessed! I need help. All I want to do is make homemade stuff. Not even homemade dinner but crafty gifty type things. I think it all started with Christmas and the Vanilla Sugar that I made. Now I can’t stop googling needle felting and homemade vanilla extract. I guess there are worse things to be obsessed with 🙂 I have already started thinking about homemade Christmas gifts for next year, and its only January.
- 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
- 2 cups granulated sugar
I sliced the vanilla bean and scraped the seeds out. I mixed with the sugar then sifted it to get any large sugar lumps out.
I used some Ball jars that I bought at my local grocery store. After I washed them I made sure they were completely dry before adding the sugar.
Fill the jar with some of the sugar then add the split vanilla bean. Fill the rest of the jar with the sugar burying the bean.
I got these super cute wooden spoons to tie to the jars with festive ribbon.
Let the mix rest for a few weeks before using. My next Vanilla project….Vanilla Extract!
