Sucre Vanillé (Vanilla Sugar) - A sugar-Free Version
I thought it would be nice to have this gourmet ingredient in a sugar-free version. So here it is.
You can even use vanilla beans that have been previously infused in another recipe. Just dry them before placing in the xylitol/erythritol blend. You could also grind up spent and dried vanilla pods with this blend of sweeteners to get the most use out of your vanilla.
Sucre Vanillé Recipe:
4 vanilla beans, split lenghtwise
2 c. xylitol
2 c. erythritol (or Lakanto's zero-cal granular sweetener)
Scrape out the seeds from the vanilla bean pods.
Combine the seeds, pods, xylitol and erythritol in a jar and shake to mix.
Cover tightly and allow the flavors to blend for several weeks.
Add more sugar to the jar as you use it up.
Use in place of regular sugar in recipes.
