How to make it: 

1. First of all place the scraped out vanilla beans in a clean and dry jar. If they are too long to fit into the glass, just cut them to smaller pieces.

3. Next close the lid and let it rest for 2-4 weeks. The sugar will absorb the aroma of the vanilla beans. If the sugar is sticking together a bit after re-opening it, simply stir it with a spoon. You can add scraped out vanilla beans whenever you have some more leftovers. As well you can add more sugar, when you have used up some of the sugar from the glass.
