 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      plump         moist vanilla beans
    4      cups          sugar
 
 Flatten the vanilla beans and cut them in half lengthwise.  With
 a small spoon, scrape out the seeds and place them in a small bowl; reserve
 the seeds for another use.  Combine
 the pods and the sugar in a jar.  Cover securely and set aside
 at room temperature for several days to scent and flavor the
 sugar.  Use in place of regular sugar when preparing desserts.
 Vanilla sugar can be stored indefinitely.  As the sugar is used,
 replace with new sugar.  (When baking, I return rinsed and
 thoroughly dried pods to the sugar mixture as an added boost.)
