Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 vanilla bean

Instructions

  • 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.
