I love to use this sugar on my French toast or even in my coffee.

1 vanilla bean, whole
2 cups granulated sugar

Take the vanilla bean and slice it down the side. Next, use the back of a knife and scrape the seeds into and airtight container with sugar. Bury the bean in the sugar and seal it with a lid. Let sit in a cool place for 1 to 2 weeks to allow the flavors to blend together.
