pantry staple: vanilla syrup

Vanilla syrup is another pantry staple that is as easy to make as it is to find a use for. My favorite use is mixed into an iced coffee/iced latte.

2 vanilla beans
2 cups water
2 cups sugar

1. Bring water and sugar to a simmer over medium heat. Cut vanilla beans lengthwise, scrape out seeds, and add to pot along with pods.

2. Simmer for 15 minutes, until sugar dissolves into water and the liquid reduces.

3. Pour into jars (for gifts) or a liquid dispenser for easy access.
