Cut 3 or 4 dry vanilla beans in half and add to jar. Tightly seal jar with lid. Shake gently to mix. Let the sugar mixture sit for about 2 weeks to allow vanilla beans to infuse sugar. Use vanilla sugar in hot beverages and baking recipes.

Add another 1-1/2 cups sugar to the jar. Cut pod into 2 or 3 pieces and add to sugar. Tightly seal jar with lid. To mix, shake 4 or 5 times vigorously. Let the sugar sit for one week before using. Use vanilla sugar in hot beverages and baking recipes.
