Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

To make Vanilla Simple Syrup: 

In a small saucepan, over medium heat combine the sugar, water, vanilla bean seeds, and vanilla pod. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the syrup to cool, about 20 minutes. Strain before using. 

Yield: 1 cup

Cook's Note

The blended mixture can be strained through a fine mesh sieve to remove the berry seeds, if preferred.
