Rich Vanilla Sprinkling Sugar
The sugar crystals in Alter Eco Golden Brown Unrefined Ground Cane Sugar are enveloped in a thick coat of molasses and are loaded with the richness of unrefined nutrients and minerals found naturally in sugarcane juice such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron. This rare and delightful sweetener is naturally moist and has a rich taste with hints of vanilla. This ultra-simple preparation accentuates this vanilla flavor, using real vanilla beans and pods for authenticity.
1 vanilla bean
2 cups Alter Eco Golden Brown, Unrefined Mascobado Ground Cane Sugar
Use a knife to split the vanilla bean down the side. Using the back of the knife, carefully scrape out the seeds. Mix the seeds and the split bean with the sugar in a jar. Shake a few times and let sit for at least 2 weeks. Flavors will continue to develop the longer it is stored.
Note: Even if the vanilla seeds have been used for something else, the outer pod of a vanilla bean is still always great for making this sugar:
do not throw it away.
