Introduction: Vanilla Salt
Vanilla salt can be substituted in most baking recipes, added as a finisher to dishes and drinks. It's very tasty and very easy to make. Most vanilla salt recipes are done with vanilla beans, which are both expensive and can be hard to find. This recipe uses pure vanilla extract.
Step 1: BoM
Sea Salt (I'm using Bitterman's Fleur de Sel)
1 tsp of vanilla bean per 1/4 cup of salt.
Step 2: Vanilla
Split a vanilla bean and scoop out the insides. 1 pod has approximately 3 teaspoons of vanilla beans.
Step 3: Salt
Fleur de Sel is a moister sea salt than most, so you may want to use a pestle to crush the beans into the salt to help you mix it all up. Then use a whisk to aid in spreading the beans throughout the salt.
Step 4: Age
Pour the vanilla salt mixture into an airtight container, throw in the empty pod too if you like, and let sit for a week or two.
