Top Tip - instead of buying expensive vanilla flavoured sugar from Posh Shops, simply buy a vanilla pod, stick it in a jar with a load of bog-standard sugar and leave for 48 hrs. Voila - loads of lovely vanilla sugar. Excellent in coffee (not so great in tea, but then sugar in tea should be illegal except in times of dire emergency) or in custard or scattered on fruit. Anything you'd use sugar for, really.
(note: this jar is refilled with plain sugar about once a month, and has used the same vanilla pod for two years now. Sugar still comes out very vanilla flavoured)
