Vanilla sugar

Vanilla sugar is sugar flavoured with vanilla and is used extensively in baking, especially in Germany.

To make your own vanilla sugar (far superior to the shop bought versions). buy a vanilla pod and split it along one side with a sharp knife. Add to one kilo of sugar and keep in a airproof box in a dark place. Use as necessary in dishes. It is particularly good on top of roast peaches with vanilla sugar and Amaretto, served with a vanilla ice cream.
