Slice the vanilla bean lengthwise with some force as it has a tough skin, slightly pull apart the bean to expose the seeds.
Then hold a small, sharp knife at an angle to the bean and scrape the seeds from one end to the other.
Place one cup of water and one cup of white sugar the vanilla seeds and pods in a small saucepan.
On high heat bring it to a boil, lower the heat and gently simmer until the sugar has been completely dissolved (approximately 10 minutes).
Allow to cool and pour into a glass container with a tight-fitting lid.
Store in a dark place in a tightly sealed glass container.
