I am so happy to come back from vacation and share new recipes with you once again! I hope your vacation has been everything you hoped for. We spend our time in NM with family and friends; It was a very relaxing vacation. My sister and I had so much fun cooking together while we were there and I can't wait to share all the new foods with you this month!In preparation for tomorrow's post, you'll want to mix a batch of this plain vanilla syrup. You will not regret; I can promise you that right now. Sprinkled with your coffee, tea, latte, or any other beverage you want, this is a syrup you'll want to have on hand.
How to make vanilla coffee syrup
Servings: 16 oz
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup of water
- 1 vanilla seeds scraped
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Combine sugar, water, vanilla beans, and shaved vanilla halves in small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from the fire. Add the vanilla extract and let the syrup cool down. Pour into a jar and refrigerate until necessary.
Feel free to substitute 2 additional teaspoons of vanilla extract for the vanilla bean, if you don't have vanilla beans on hand. It will work well both ways. The syrup will be prettier with the vanilla specks floating in the syrup, but using the extract alone is definitely the more frugal option.
