Homemade // Vanilla Syrup

 

Homemade is a new thursday series we've added where we share something that can be homemade that we would typically buy at the store! enjoy! 

 This recipe is super easy! I (Lindsay) make it at the cafe I work at and customers love coming in just for this vanilla syrup. 

Ingredients // (1:1:1 ratio)

Vanilla beans

Brown sugar (or Raw sugar)

Water

 

The ratio is one cup water, one cup sugar to one vanilla bean. You can make the recipe as big as you'd like! 

I used 2:2:2 ratio

 

Step one Slice open vanilla beans down the center from the top to the bottom with a small sharp knife. Open them up and scrape out the small black seeds with a knife. Place them all into a pot including the bean itself.

Step two Measure water and sugar into pot, stir and place onto stove

Step three Bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Once the syrup has been brought to a boil, let it sit on low for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step four Once the 15 minutes are up, take it off the burner, put a lid on the pot and let it sit over night! 

//Your Vanilla syrup will be ready in the morning for your coffee, oatmeal, or substitute it for your artificial vanilla baking ingredient!  Pour it into a jar and place the Vanilla beans inside the syrup as well.
