Vanilla syrup for iced coffee, vanilla soda, snow cones, and more.
A thicker syrup can be made by reducing sugar amount to 1 cup. The thicker syrup is more for iced coffee. The thin syrup makes great vanilla soda with 1/4 part syrup and 3/4 part soda water. The thin syrup plus sweetened condensed milk on shaved ice makes a great snow cone.
Store in the refrigerator until ready to use. I use clean Ball(R) jars for storage.
Syrup can be stored with or without the vanilla bean, but don't eat it.
