Hello, thank you for the tip! Where do you buy ground vanilla bean powder?

I have seen it at Whole Foods, Williams Sonoma, small specialty stores and kitchen supply stores and you can also buy it online, that’s where I get it. Hope that helps.

What would the equivalent measurement be of home made Vanilla sugar to one pkg. of Dr. Oetker’s Vanillezucker? This is a very helpful DIY suggestion. Thank you.

1 sachet of Dr. Oetker Vanillezucker weighs 8 grams, that equals about 2 (US) teaspoons. Thanks for bringing that up, I will add it to the above because that’s another questions people always ask.

I got a question! I have complete Vanilla Beans here in Mexico (can´t get ground Vanilla for whatever reason) – Can I just ground them completely? Normally you just open them and take out the inner paste?

Yes, ground vanilla is nothing but the finely ground beans, and I suppose the less perfect ones go into it, that’s why they are less expensive than whole beans. I would try to grind the beans in a food processor (not a blender, no traction), starting with a few tablespoons of sugar, otherwise the blade will run empty, and add more sugar if needed. Sift the sugar afterwards to remove the bigger pieces. Or maybe grind the beans in an electric spice grinder/coffee grinder only used for spices. Also, make sure the vanilla beans are dry and not moist, maybe slit them open and let them completely dry out first, otherwise they will make the sugar moist and lumpy. – Since you are in Mexico, I have bought get my vanilla beans and ground vanilla from the same place in Mexico for several years and have been very happy with the product (https://www.vanilla-trade.com).
