      Here (Prime has free shipping)➡️ Vanilla Beans

      You want the Madagascar Bourbon Grade A beans for good extract, and absolutely for the powder. The Planifolia Grade B is not nearly as good. You can use the good beans for extract at least 3 times, so don't discard them!

      For my extract I use at least 8 beans per cup of alcohol and I use brandy rather than vodka, rum makes an interesting flavor, also. After they are tapped out for extract, I throw a few of the beans in a pound of sugar and give it a good shake every day for a week or so to make vanilla sugar, then I use that for flavoring drinks and for a lot of my baking. (I read somewhere that you can cut back on the sugar in a recipe if you increase your vanilla to give the illusion that it's sweeter than it really is but I usually forget to.)
      I had never heard of vanilla powder before this and it never occured to me to simply dry the beans out and grind them up. *heads to Amazon to buy vanilla beans*

      I found Tahitian Vanilla Beans for about $1.70 each. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I love the full flavor of using real vanilla and I had no idea how to make the powder.

      This will come in handy for all of the mug mixes I'm making for my granddaughter for her college care package. She has a microwave in her room but she doesn't really have much room for storing things like vanilla extract!

      Vanilla beans used to be so much cheaper, the last few years the price has really skyrocketed.

    Sounds interesting! I may have to try it! Does it have to be Sargento's brand?

    No, a Silpat is a non-stick baking mat that you can use so you don't have to grease a pan or worry about foods sticking. You can find them here, I have several different sizes and types.

    I really want to try this but I don't know what a "Silpat" is, is that another ingredient?
