I love this homemade vanilla syrup - it's quick, it's easy, and it's so much better than the store-bought stuff (although, no shame, I often have a bottle in the fridge if I can't find vanilla beans).
This syrup is amazing - you can use it in coffee (hot or iced), tea, cocktails, and anything else you can dream up.
This vanilla syrup is simple, sweet and full of comforting vanilla flavor.

How to make Vanilla Syrup
If you've ever made simple syrup before, you know it's pretty straightforward. Let's go through it step by step

Add your vanilla extract and vanilla bean seeds. Turn off the heat, and let it steep for 20 minutes.
Pour into a glass jar, and store in the fridge.
What Do I Use it For?
Keep it in a glass jar in the fridge for up to two weeks.
