Making your own Vanilla Simple Syrup for use in coffee, tea, soda and many other things is easy and economical. Plus it's delicious!
You can choose to only add 1 cup sugar total, 1 1/4 cups or up to 2 cps. It's up to you.You can use all white sugar, all brown sugar or a combination of both.
Agave or other sugars can be substituted.
If you want a thicker syrup, you can add more sugar than water.
If you want to see vanilla beans in your syrup (which I do sometimes), slice open your vanilla beans after boiling and scrape seeds out into the mixture. Place beans back in overnight. Strain into a bowl. Trust me tons of itty bitty seeds will get through, straining will however prevent the clumps from getting through.
