Homemade Tahitian Vanilla honey is (almost) too easy to make! In fact, if honey’s not quite your thing, you can use agave nectar.
- 1 cup honey
- 1 Tahitian vanilla bean*
- With a sharp paring knife, split the bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds, a.k.a. vanilla caviar.
- Stir the vanilla seeds into the honey, reserving the spent bean for another use.**
- Seal the jar tightly and wait a week or so before using.

*Note: Tahitian vanilla beans are larger, more moist and more plump than other beans. If you can’t use Tahitian vanilla beans, then use 2-3 times as many of the other types of vanilla beans.
