    At the end, you will have a little sugar left with the vanilla pods that's impossible to sieve. Do not throw it away: use in a recipe like crème brûlée where you can dissolve it in hot milk which will be then filtered.

    Put your vanilla sugar in an airtight jar and keep, if possible, 3 weeks before using, so that the vanilla aromas mix well with the sugar.

    During these three weeks, stir it with a fork once a week, so that it does not form lumps.

Remarks:

You can make multiples of the proportions indicated, but it is important to respect 100 g sugar per vanilla pod.
