Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup

Making your own vanilla syrup at home is easy. Store in a sterile glass jar or bottle in the refrigerator for up to a week. Makes a great addition to coffee, tea, or cocktails. After cooking the mixture I leave the pod in the syrup to allow it to further infuse in the refrigerator.
