The Technique

A few pieces of equipment will be needed in order to complete the task. Read through the recipe before beginning. Here’s what you should know. 

Simple Syrup

Stir together 2 cups sugar & 2 cups water in a 2-quart sauce pan. Bring the mixture to a boil over High heat, stirring occasionally. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat. Refrigerate until cold. Refrigerate up to 1 week. Makes about 3 cups.

Vanilla Bean Syrup

 Add 1 split vanilla bean & the seeds to the warm sugar syrup once it has been removed from the heat. Let stand for 10 minutes. Remove the pod & pour the mixture through a fine wire sieve. Refrigerate until cold. Conversely, 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract may be substituted for the vanilla bean. Stir the extract into the syrup once the sugar has dissolved & the mixture has been removed from the heat.
