Vanilla sugar

Vanilla sugar

Almost essential in patisserie, you can find it in expensive little sachets of about 10g.

It's necessary to distinguish between the vanilla sugar which really contains vanilla, and vanillin sugar, purely chemical which has never seen a vanilla pod.

Here is how to quickly make a whole jar full of your own vanilla sugar.

Step by step recipe

1 Vanilla sugar : Photo of step #1Remove ends of 5 vanillas pod and discard. 5 min.
2 Vanilla sugar : Photo of step #2Cut into 4 or 5 sections. 1 min.
3 Vanilla sugar : Photo of step #3Put in a food-processor with 1/4 of 500 g caster sugar. 3 min.
4 Vanilla sugar : Photo of step #4Blend 2 or 3 minutes. 2 min.
5 Vanilla sugar : Photo of step #5Sieve the result through a fine strainer into a bowl... 15 min.
6 Vanilla sugar : Photo of step #6...until all the sugar fall down.
7 Vanilla sugar : Photo of step #7Put remaining vanilla pods into food processor, add another ¼ of sugar and repeat the operation.

Continue until you have used all the sugar.
8 Vanilla sugar : Photo of step #8At 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 or confectioner's custard (crème pâtissière, or french pastry cream), where you can dissolve it in hot milk which will be then filtered.
9 Vanilla sugar : Photo of step #9Put 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.

Don't believe those "recipes" who tell you that putting a vanilla pod in a jar of sugar will give you vanilla sugar, it's a lie because the vanilla pod is impervious.
